The war of the Five Titans now is one over where to dig moats and lay down drawbridges, and ticket-booths. Google. Apple. Amazon. Facebook. Microsoft.

MS is still, mostly, based on preloads and sales, though it's shifting to subscriptions + ads.

Google is straight-up advertising.

Apple refutes that hardware is a commodity.

Amazon sells ... everything else.

Facebook is Google, but weaker: Advertising without intentionality. (But it's bigly useful for tyrants and puppets.)
