NYT publishes macro breakdown of Google, Microsoft, Apple, Yahoo services

While it might seem like Google, Apple and Microsoft own the world with all of their services and tech ventures (I don't think people can say the same about Yahoo! anymore), none of these companies have it all, according to The New York Times.

While it might seem like Google, Apple and Microsoft own the world with all of their services and tech ventures (I don't think people can say the same about Yahoo! anymore), none of these companies have it all, according to The New York Times.

The folks over at the NYT Bits Blog have published this handy chart that is now circulating the web, breaking down the major services among the top four tech companies in the United States.

At first glance, the most noticeable fact is how far Yahoo! is behind the other three, with a few developments in mobile, holding on to existence just by online search and photo storage.

Then it would seem that Google, Microsoft and Apple are relatively even in terms of having the same number of services, just switching their specialties in a few categories.

After taking a look over this chart, in what areas do you think these companies should fill their gaps? Should Google develop some music hardware? Should Apple start a search engine? What should Yahoo! even consider doing first??

[UPDATE: The chart posted above unintentionally cut off half of the results. The full chart is below.]
