In the following video, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner takes a look at Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and IBM (NYSE:IBM), now that both have released this quarter's earnings. While Andrew loves the management at IBM and likes its continued execution of its goals to move toward a business model focused more on software and services, which are higher-margin areas for the company, it's hard to argue with the idea that IBM is still positioned in a rapidly maturing industry, whereas Google has tremendous growth prospects ahead of it.
