Modern capitalism has brought with it a plethora of competition and wealth. In this scenario, the firms that were able to out-innovate their competitors, in a sense, won it all. As technology helped the world advance the most, the leading companies in the competitive market of tech firms became super-rich. And we are not just saying that; we are actually talking about net worths totalling up to trillions of dollars!
In this piece, we will be delving into the stories of these very businesses and their latest offerings in the form of products and/or services. If we go by pure numbers, there is a very high likelihood that you will be using, at the very least, one of the services and/or products of these companies.
Thus, you should be retaining all the information in this article to figure out which of their new products to invest in. In addition to detailing their new products, we will also be delving deep into the histories of all of these companies for context. Nonetheless, before we delve deep into these companies, we need to stress something of huge significance in terms of taking advantage of the products of these companies.
A Worthy Side Note
A good connection to the internet is a must in the case you want to benefit from the offerings of tech giants. A case in point would be using Facebook’s premier product, Facebook Messenger. You may very well be able to chat with your friends over a mediocre internet connection, but your interaction will be heavily disrupted if you choose to video call. Thus, to benefit fully from the instant messaging app, you need to have a good internet connection.
If you are currently making use of an internet connection that does not make the cut or is simply non-existent, our suggestion would be to choose Xfinity internet. The brand not only makes sure your internet speed is fast, but it also makes sure the internet is available consistently over time.
Google is a household name these days. In fact, there is a high chance you came to this web page after “googling” something similar to the topic of this article. The company was established in 1998 by two genii of the tech world, Larry Paige and Sergey Brin. In the space of a decade, Google became one of the leading companies in the world. Today, it is such a humungous brand that it is a big risk to pinpoint one thing that led to its fame. Nonetheless, in the case that we were forced to pinpoint one reason, we would cite its 92.4% share in the market of search engines.
Google has released or will be releasing some great products in the market recently and in the near future. These include the smart device Nest Hub speakers, the phones Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, and the smartwatch Pixel Watch.
Just like Google, Amazon is a name that everyone has heard of. We typically think of Amazon as an online retail store that is responsible for delivering goods to our houses. However, there is much more to the company. First, there is Amazon Prime Video, which has now become a pretty strong competitor of Netflix. Alongside, Amazon has many subsidiaries including but not limited to Whole Foods Market, Goodreads, Audible.com, and Twitch.
Amazon’s most exciting recently released product is a home robot powered by Alexa technology by the name of Astro.
Meta is the elephant in the market of social media, just as Google is in the market of search engines. We say this because Meta owns three of the world’s most used social media platforms – WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram. Meta, as the name suggests, has its focus squarely on the metaverse.
As far as the net worth is concerned, Apple trumps all the rest of the companies in the world as it just reached the three trillion dollar mark at the start of the year. Until Steve Jobs – the founder of the company — died in 2011, he led the company. Afterwards, Tim Cook took charge. The newest products of this company are the 24-inch iMac, the iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Pro, the iPhone 13 Pro Max, and the iPhone 13 Mini.
This company is behind the incredibly resourceful Microsoft Office Suite and the great brand of operations systems, Microsoft Windows. Alongside, it also invented the Edge and Internet Explorer web browsers. Established by Bill Gates back in 1975, it has been at the center of the corporate and technology world longer than any of the other giants we have mentioned in this article.
It’s a wrap for now. Go ahead and dominate all the discussions about the world of tech!
