Innovation: Talking the Talk vs. Walking the Walk

Amazon.com and Google have gotten a lot of attention for new ideas like Google Glass, driverless cars, and drone shipping and are now thought-leading innovators on the market, surpassing Apple

But if you believe that innovation is turning great ideas into products people will buy, then these ideas have a long way to go. It's also hard to judge Apple's innovations since the iPad because development happens under a cloud of secrecy in Cupertino, unlike Google and Amazon, which publicize new ideas.
