The reason they are spending their billions...

.. is because by dumping cash profits into infrastructure projects means they don't pay tax on it.

It's the same reason a shop-by-post outfit, Amazon, have gone into cloud computing. It's not because they are an IT company - it's just another way for them to pay no tax by showing no profits.
