I feel Facebook and Netflix will be gone/ downgraded to second/third tier.
Google and Amazon will rule 75% of the tech industry
Apple has slim chance of surviving/thriving ( only if Apple’s health/AI really does something groundbreaking)
Who will be the other top players ?
Uber / Dropbox / Tencent ?
What do you think ?

    Nflx will be worth a trillion by then. Amzn a few more.
    Aapl will continue to be successful for a long time.
    Others have significant headwinds, Dropbox might not really be around

      I should sell all my AMZN stock and buy Netflix. With 1 trillion market cap I would make 10x by your logic.

      I think Microsoft has some solid products and their engineering is really good. I just don't think they have anything really innovative currently - that's all.

      Microsoft doesn't need the best product. Just a #2 or #3 product. Aka good enough.

      Enterprises don't care if the product is the best tech when they choose. Microsoft's strategy has been working for them fine

      MS products are engraved in many companies as well as consumer market - however there is a shift away from it at least in the enterprise space and has been progressing well for quite some time. Nevertheless - consumer space is huge and I don’t see apple or linux flavors taking it over. So MS is there to stay..

      Revenue is worthless if you have zero profit. Yes Chinese manufacturers have massive revenue but unless they somehow drive a profit they’re worthless. I read on Bloomberg or somewhere that it’s estimated that iPhones are around 50% profit. That leaves a ton of head room to drop prices if apple actually needed to compete.

      Do you really think Chinese phones are eating into apple’s market? They are destroying Samsung, but they got nothing on apple because of software ecosystem. They are also for different market segments. It’s like saying Zara is going to eat LVMH’s lunch.

      iPhone’s share has been decreasing in China and is never on the top list in India. If Apple wants to grow the market outside of US, it either helps grow people’s income or lower the product price. I am an iPhone addict but seriously, iPhone is not really innovating.

      Apple isn't going anywhere. Yes, they're always behind the ball, but they're like the BMW or AmEx of hardware and their quality control is second to none. I code all day and no other manufacturer comes close - and I have a Pixelbook as well. Google's products maybe cutting edge, but they're half baked and their support is so bad it is insulting. They off load their quality control on to their customers. They're not going anywhere either, because they own the internet.

      Lol, uber can't fuck up more the it already did. It's entire history was about screwing legislation and scandals. That was largely what made what they are, otherwise they would've been smothered. It's already changing as a large company now and the fact governments had to break their stupid taxi monopolies. In no way uber can be stopped.

      I'm betting that we'll see simulated sex become more pleasurable than real sex in the next 200 years. At that point, humans will only pair for emotional reasons and may effectively stop reproducing. It may coincide with a level of genetic engineering that produces immortality

      That too. I'm eagerly awaiting transferable consciousness. However, I wonder if the human race will become extinct at that point because real life and self sustenance will no longer be as appealing as living through the most vicarious memories of others...unless we've fully automated our self sustenance and made ourselves immortal by then.

      Has anyone else noticed the trend over the past, oh, 30 years, of small businesses folding in favor of large chains? Unless Square drives down processing fees across the board, I doubt they’ll be in Walmart, Starbucks, Chipotle, McDonald’s, Chili’s, Amazon, et cetera, etc, etc. My guess is that most inland Americans have never even seen a Square chip reader and have never heard of the company. And I doubt food stalls in Mumbai or even Beijing are swiping into Square.
