Apple vs. Intel: Intel

Intel is ready to go nano-a-nano against Apple. Sure, the iPod nano has become an iconic product, and its success has helped fuel part of the company's recent growth. But in spite of its name, there's little actual nanotechnology in it.

Intel, on the other hand, is engaged in real nanotechnology. Its nano isn't about glitz or marketing, but future growth. The company is already working with Micron Technology (NYSE: MU) and Nanosys -- a private nanotech company whose investors include Motley Fool Rule Breakers recommendation Harris & Harris (Nasdaq: TINY) is -- on developing next-generation NAND flash memory to compete with Samsung and Toshiba. It's also experimenting with how quantum dots, nanowires, and carbon nanotubes might be able to imbue future technologies with amazing new features and characteristics.
