I wrote a web page August 2006 with the below content. These two companies have been doing quite well. They are not recession proof, but they have made good results anyway.
APPLE AND GOOGLE
The announcement by Apple that Google C.E.O. Eric Schmidt will join its board means that half of Apple’s eight person board has ties to the search giant. This means several things in the context of the Web, emerging technologies, and business. It means that Apple is looking to the Web as a platform for more applications. We can probably look for more Web-dependent products from Apple in the years to come. This is especially true if, as some analysts predict, Google is planning to take its omnipresent Wi-Fi experiment in San Francisco to other cities in the coming years.
