It used to be that tech companies had an IPO early and fizzled after a couple years. That’s not the case anymore, Google is over 20 years old, Facebook 15, Apple and Microsoft are in their 40s. How long will Google be around?

    Google is a criminal organization masquerading as a tech company. They won't last long in their current form.

      We aren't in criminal anti-trust probe.

  • For large companies like Yahoo and Sun it took over 10 years to fizzle out. G will still be around in 20 years.

      Look at IBM, Oracle, Microsoft.
      They are also full of politics and no innovation (msft copies AWS. Azure’s own differentiators have mostly flopped)

    • They are still around though.

    No company can possibly catch up to Google with brute force (in terms of being better from a technical perspective in search, ads, and cataloging the internet). Until the medium of which society looks for information on the internet fundamentally changes Google should be pretty safe. Even with the lack of diversified revenue streams, Google just has an untouchable lockdown on a fundamental pillar of the internet at the moment and for the forseeable future.

    • When someone figures out how to stream ads via brain implants, Google’s business may be in trouble. Of course, chances are Google will have a finger in that pie also. Unless we screw it up due to thoughtfulness, SJW protests or what not.

    Google is still growing and actively diversifying. It’ll be around for 50 years at least. And so will other faangs

      I feel both g and f are quite risky. I can imagine alibaba can exceed both in a few yrs

      Both companies are quite flexible business-direction wise and have an insane eng talent pool and tech that can literally do anything anyone else can.
      Vr, self driving cars, AI, ML, massive data processing and storage capacity...
