It is very difficult to beat the first mover advantage , san, which Google has.

Another prime example would be MS. They moved into the userfriendly OS area, for home computers, when every manufacturer was concentrating on Unix systems. MS still has the most user friendly OSes around. (though linux is catching up fast).
