The invention of the microchip was followed by the birth of a number of great inventions. These advances were witnessed not only in the worlds of health and engineering but also in the world of recreation. It would not be wrong to say that, without the industrial organization that modern capitalism has brought, all these inventions would have just been a dream. We say this because of multiple reasons. Firstly, capitalism brought with it competition between firms. In order to gain competitive advantages over their competitors, companies engaged in intense research and development campaigns to drive innovation.
Today, we are going to be discussing these very companies and the latest products they have introduced. Chances are you already using many of the products of these companies and really value them. Thus, it makes all the sense in the world for you to read the rest of this article very carefully to see if any of those businesses have released any new products. Alongside, we will also be throwing out some fun facts about these big players in the tech world. However, before we dive into these organizations, let us highlight a tangent of significance.
The Tangent of Significance
To take full advantage of the offerings of these tech companies, you need to have quality internet. For example, Facebook – the world’s most popular social media platform – allows you to video chat with a group of your friends instantly. However, in the case that you do not have a steady supply of internet, you will not be able to benefit from this video calling feature.
In the case that you are not satisfied with your present internet service or do not currently have one altogether, we would recommend subscribing to one of the Xfinity internet plans. Comcast Xfinity is known to ensure the consistent provision of quick internet.
Founded by now-centibillionaires, Eric Schmidt and Larry Paige, in 1998, Google has now become one of the leading companies in the world within the space of a couple of decades. When it comes to a phenomenon as big as this company, it is very difficult to pinpoint what led to it being this large. However, if we were forced to pick and choose one reason for its exponential growth, we would say that it is its domination of the search engine market. In fact, according to Statista – a statistics organization that has been publishing reports for well over a decade, Google took up as much as 92.47 percent of the market share! No wonder, the company is now worth much more than a trillion dollars.
The latest products that Google already has or will be introducing soon this year include the phones Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, the smartwatch Pixel Watch, and the smart device Nest Hub speakers. All these devices, once released, are or will be widely available on the internet.
Amazon, like Google, is a company that literally everyone knows about and is impacted by every single day. It was launched in 1995 by another centibillionaire Jeff Bezos. As the company owns a lot of subsidiaries, it does a lot more than what we experience when we go to Amazon.com. We say this knowing the company controls famous brands such as Goodreads, Audible.com, Twitch, and Whole Foods Market. By the end of last year (2021), Amazon’s net worth was estimated to have topped the trillion-dollar mark.
The latest products of the brand include Astro, a home robot brought into life by Alexa technology.
If Google was the giant in the search engine industry, Meta is definitely the giant in the social media world. And we’re just not saying it as an oversimplification; Meta owns, by far, the three most popular social media apps in the world – Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp.
As the name suggests, Meta’s main focus, in terms of brand development, is on the metaverse. In fact, that is the reason it changed its name from Facebook to Meta.
Apple is the world’s biggest company in terms of net worth. It reached the three trillion dollar milestone this year in January. It was founded and led by Steve Jobs until his death in October 2011. Since then, Tim Cook has led the company. Apple’s latest products include the iPhone 13 series and the new 24-inch iMac.
Last but definitely not least, Microsoft is another tech giant that has made a profound impact on the world of technology. Have a laptop that is not a Macbook? You are probably taking advantage of a Microsoft Windows operating system. Besides, Microsoft is also famous because of the Microsoft Office Suite and the Internet Explorer and Edge web browsers. Microsoft was founded by Bill Gates almost half a century ago. This means that it has remained relevant for the longest period of time.
We are optimistic you now feel more informed about the increasingly influential world of technology.
