Facebook, Microsoft, Apple (will "fall" before Microsoft but struggle and outlive Microsoft)

True, but they still have a cult-like following that will buy whatever shit they put out. Their whole ecosystem (computers, mobile, Air TV, whatever) would have to lose favor with that crowd for them to fall.

Apple first, then Microsoft. Apple is the least powerful right now, and with all the dumb shit they do, I could see it making them fail at some point. Microsoft powers pretty much all desktop PCs, and is the only option for gayming, so it's gonna stick around for longer.
I say facebook is third, because it is a platform that is independent of an OS. If Apple and Microsoft die, Facebook can still be accessed through just about anything else. Google I feel is making more sneaky indoctrination moves, and is definitely continuing to grow, while I'm not sure about Facebook (is it still growing? Shrinking? Staying where it is?). I think our distant future will consist of everybody locked down into Chromebooks/Fuchsia devices, as Google moves to take control of the entire world. I can't say the same for Facebook.

>> No.62876556

Which is why I placed Apple after Facebook and Microsoft. Quality of Apple products will decline shortly but there are so many Apple drones, Apple will live for a while. Facebook will be the first to fall for obvious reasons. I'm also convinced that Microsoft does something absolutely retarded at some point, turning people into Linux, which leads to decent MS Office replacement and game support on Linux, thus killing Microsoft. If no laws intervene, Google will prevail.

>> No.62876572

Google and Microsoft are too big to fail. Microsoft holds majority desktop OS marketshare and Android holds majority mobile OS marketshare too.

>> No.62876713

FB first, hope its an instant death
Apple second, they dont have that many products and if they fuck up enough ppl will stop buying them.
But if they decide to do a retail macOS that can be installed in any hardware then MS will be completely dead before

If google dies it might cause a complete worldwide shitstorm like never seen before

>> No.62876726

BRIC countries will make Google and Microsoft largely irrelevant after they cease to be third world and start to really develop their own industries. Facebook will go the way of Yahoo long before then because they don't really provide anything unique. Apple will live on for a very long time, but will eventually be forced into the luxury market by cheaper and technically superior products from BRIC countries.

>> No.62876734

Facebook, Google (has a core business that is potentially losable to chinese competitors), Microsoft, Apple cannot fall as its stocks currently make up more than 10% of the value of the NASDAQ, so it'd get bailed out several times before it could fall.

>> No.62876769

least powerful but they have two things: the most cash of any company on earth (~270b) + name/status recognition among millennials

That cash alone would take them at least a decade or two of complete fuckups (not just mildly shitty things like memebars and notches) to burn through that kind of cash.

People outside of America/Canada might not realize the stranglehold Apple has on young people, and especially girls.

Microsoft is (kind of) preparing for this by turning all their products into services. If Microsoft died ten years ago, the companies would still run Outlook and shit even if Microsoft didn't exist.

If Apples "innovations" remain the quality of iPhone X, it will eventually fall. Even the normies realize how retarded iPhone X is. Microsoft is unlikely to fall but they have really been poking the ice lately by trying how far will their userbase bend.

Microsoft will go first since power users don't want Botnet 10 and non-technical users are fine with tablets. Apple will likely merge OSX and IOS into an ARM-based platform, which will kill off x86 and cross-platform support with Windows.

Zuckerberg is very smart business-wise so I doubt Facebook will go under anytime soon. Apple will always have blind consumers. Google is too big to fail. Amazon will continue to grow.

Facebook is too big to suffer a natural decline. The Facebook website may stagnate and die but Facebook the company will have their hands in whatever the next platform is, even if they need to buy it out. FB will more likely become a holding company like Alphabet, or Nestle, at which point there's no way to remove them from the market via market forces, and the only way to get rid of them will be by government intervention.

major yet shitty social media website that have had no updates since 2014, only live off local ads. should die in a decade.
only relies on their "ecosystem" of i-shit. doesn't control any market or industry, doesn't have any major products, only sells "elitist" hardware or service that works with this hardware exclusively with this hardware, i. e. itunes, app store. should share vertu's fate as "premium" smartphones manufacturer soon.
sells various tech-related products, from office to xbox, has the majority in desktop and minor stake in servers, has the most diversified chart of revenue streams. doesn't develop in mobile and web industries at all, which is two most significant at the moment. if it dies, we probably would've lost a couple of major services, but almost all of them has alternatives.

powers overwhelming majority of ads on the web, owns several most visited websites and most used services, has the majority in mobile, actively develops and invests in future technologies i. e. google glasses, tensorflow. looks like it's not going anywhere in the future, as lots of industries are contolled by google or at least depend on it.

Facebook first. All that needs to happen is another big social network shows up or normies get tired of using social networks in general. People don't use Facebook as much these days. At best, it's a way to keep in touch with friends, and nothing more. Some of their other shit is failing. Oculus is dead in the water, for instance.

Among the rest, I'm not sure if any will actually fall. Apple can survive a decade with no profits unless they get fucked by the EU for their Ireland tax scheme, in which case their monetary reserves could collapse. Microsoft in some ways is becoming less relevant, and in other ways is making money hand over fist from Azure. They don't always succeed at things, but they seem to be able to pick themselves up from their failures well and make enough to keep stable. As for Google... the problem is they don't exactly have any competition.

Facebook is ready to eat shit. Last election cycle really turned many people off of the platform. Everyone blocked so many other people that probably half the traffic is occurring on the site anymore.

Microsoft doesn't know what the fuck they are anymore besides a corporate software company and video game console producer. Windows is better than ever, yet worse than ever at the same time. They know they have to embrace the *nix infrastructure to keep devs around, but it's too little too late, and their offerings are meager at best.

Apple is no longer a computer company, but a cell phone company for many years running. Steve Jobs was Apple. We all know this, yet most consumers and market players are barely figuring this out now. Innovation? Naw, just iPhone 9 - Now with no screen!

Google will always be around, kinda like IBM. They're so diversified and half-decent that you can't kill them. They do a bit of everything. Their marketshare may drop a bit, but I still see them as a search giant for the foreseeable future.

>> No.62882766

Google fundamentally has parts of their business nobody can even come close to replicating. Googles main threat is antitrust because having a monopoly when it comes to search and video gives you an OBSCENE amount of power by controlling the algorithms that control what people see. No Bing and Vimeo aren't real competition.

Microsoft as well is also too deeply embedded in the business market to be easily dislodged. I see them as being the least vulnerable to any existential threat because they still make insane margins on their products yet they're not really liable to get another antitrust ruling against them.

Apple could easily turn into Sony in a matter of decades.

Facebook will probably HNGGGGG first because it has a fairly meme business model and is surrounded by viable replacements and competitors regardless of how it diversifies.

So Facebook > Apple > Alphabet > MS.

>> No.62882769

Basically the order your image has them marching to their death where Facebook is the first to the executioner's block.

Microsoft and Google will be the last to go because of how diversified they are, where applel has already been to Deaths door and Microsoft bailed them out (though I am willing to bet if there had been a third viable commercial OS at the time so M$ wouldn't be facing extra scrutiny for having a monopoly, Billy boy would have let Apple die), and Farcebook could just as easily go the way of MySpace if something else comes along that captures the public attention, as Facebook ads only make money when people are actually using Facebook.

>> No.62882834

Facebook first for sure. There are tons of social media options.

>> No.62882864

Facebook is already dying like Myspace did. Its collapse won't be as dramatic, but the rot is terminal.

Apple is the new Sony, except they haven't diversified into banking quite like Sony did, which saved Sony's ass when their consumer electronics biz went tits up. However, that giant cash pile of theirs could kickstart one hell of an investment bank if they Jew up enough.

Google/Alphabet is massively undiversified, but their products are woven into the fabric of the Internet so tightly that displacing them will be difficult.

Amazon's core e-commerce biz can be duplicated too easily. It's why Bezos is trying to diversify like mad, and trying to become the new Microsoft.

Microsoft is completely entrenched in government and business. They have gobs of talent, but somehow they keep killing off everything good that they create (WP7, Zune, HoloLens, that exercise band, Nano Server, etc) while doubling down on garbage (SharePoint, which the bad half of O365 is built around...I'm not fond of Azure, especially ARM, but it's not total trash). They're a lot like Xerox. And like Xerox, they'll be around after the others have turned to dust.

Apple Music is pretty cool. The iPad Pro with the pencil is probably the first iPad worth getting over like, any other tablet, as long as you can afford it.

Other than that, eeh.

Honestly I would like MS to finally grow a pair, annouce an actual point of no return in windoze development and just fucking rewrite this shit from scratch - same looks, different internals, all bugs amended, actual useful features added (sorting catalgos by size omg, pls) and bullshit thrown out. Make it cheap and everyone will buy one, good lord is it that hard to understand it?

Easily the riskiest business. One wrong step or a change in trends and they're gone.
Very diversified, but all of their products are mediocre. They're surviving solely on user's inertia. It will be a slow but certain death.
They have too much money and too much talent to fail. They've got the right formula and their niche market set.
Sadly, they're not going anywhere. Too entrenched in the web and in everything. All the accumulated data allows them to be major players in AI, which is a key market of the future.

Sony was once known ubiquitously as being a brand of quality.

Make no mistake, today, Sony does make some good products, but I think he's just referring to Sony's "fall from grace" as it were.

You can see it from macbook pros whose specs are shit for the price (and other companies are starting to surpass it in terms of aesthetics, but not OS - yet)

You can see it in the iPhone and it's same-look year in and year out, same OS, and an in the iPhone X that they are having troubles making but also is ugly as fuck and costs $1000 to start.

Mac rose meteorically after those Justin Long vs old, nerdy guy commercials in the mid-late 2000s. In the early 2000s, nobody wanted to be caught dead with those fucking eMacs. Do not overestimate Apple as some company that is incapable of failing. They simply built up a shit load of cash over the past decade on the basis of people's vanity. Tastes can change, and I'm starting to see more young people trading their iPhones in for the s8

>In what order will these corps fall?
Google, I would say. Consider the follow:

>There is a global economic downturn with in the 2-3 years.
>Ad speeding declines.
>Companies realize that AdSense is worthless for adversing and Alphabet starts to bleed money.
>But because Google has injected themselves deep inside the web, they are Too Big to Fail.
>Eventually they are bailed out by governments. The European and Russian portions are nationalized, like EADS in the former case. The American portion is nationalized, but is privatized afterwards with special relationship with the government like Ma Bell and RCA back in the day. Not sure about what happens in East Asia.

Mircosoft and Apple are diversified enough to avoid failure. Not sure about Facebook.

Facebook first, social media comes and goes, it'll be nothing major for it to fade away
Then a long time after that (possibly to the point where there has been 2 or 3 new facebooks), apple next. Their business is rather limited in terms of what they can make, and even their dedicated fanbase will eventually move onto something else.
Then, quite a long time after that as well, Google. The way they're currently acting will eventually annoy too many users, and a replacement will come along. Maybe even Amazon will branch out to be the next google, though I can see them making the exact same mistakes as google.
Microsoft will of course eventually die as all companies do, but I cant imagine it happening. Not because their doing so well, but they're certainly the most established out of all 4.

Azure is a relative newcomer to the market and it has completely displaced its' competitors such as AWS in the enterprise market. MS might not be so innovative in the consumer market anymore but they're pulling an IBM and dominating the enterprise market behind the scenes.

Facebook is already dying, a floundering apple will achieve possibly the biggest corporate merger of all time when they take over facebook. It'll just wither and die over time though, it'll basically become the new yahoo in about 10 years.
Google will survive a lot longer, but their poor treatment of acquisitions such as youtube and the endless virtue signalling will erode them over time. Once they become just a search engine, investors will see the profits disappear and abandon ship
Microsoft will survive. Microsoft ain't going anywhere, because they basically have an OS monopoly that lincucks keep alive by shilling their redundant platform. Linux is Microsoft's greatest strength in a way.

I never thought I would be shilling microsoft, an on /g/ of all places, but I agree. I recently used Azure for a project and it had by far the highest quality of service and just an insane amount of useful features. Far better than AWS or Google Cloud, although in the future I will probably just use openstack because I'm a control freak when it comes to cloud architecture.

facebook as it was originally intended to be used is dead as fuck
its now just news outlets and advertisers competing with big page that get all the attention. the individual user isnt shit on facebook anymore and no one cares

its the same as youtube is with the giant channels dominating the entire platform, but with more established companies instead of people. probably where twitter and everything else already is or is heading
