It might I think. Sony is only 0.15 points behind Google's score of 78.62. This score is given based on consumer admiration of the products of Google and Sony in terms of technological improvement.
But I think Sony won't be able to beat Google because Google plays a big role in all our lives whereas Sony is important only to those who buy Sony gadgets. Goggle offers several free products whereas you need to buy Sony's products.
Yahoo! news has covered the story elaborately. Look at the Google ad revenue that is reported at a whopping $6.7 billion in the first quarter of 2010!
Three cheers to Google!
