Graham Spencer, over at MacStories, has a nice analysis of the entertainment ecosystems of some of the top companies playing in the digital space — Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, and Google. It’s no surprise that Apple has a nice cushion on most of the important categories, measured in world access — Music, Movies, TV Shows — and is in an extremely close second in Apps (both mobile and desktop). Spencer’s conclusion:
Whichever company is the “winner” depends on your circumstances (location, device, etc), but if you were to generally draw a conclusion I think it is clear that Apple would lead, Microsoft would be second, Google third and Amazon fourth.
