Neither are Google nor Amazon. Here’s why that matters.
Wow. Clickbait spotted after a long time.
Well, You gotta be kidding me for sure by saying Facebook or Google are not technology companies.
No, not clickbait, the author explores semantics and relations to 'branding' and perceptions from investors . From the article:
It's easy, you see what sort of company they are from how they make money. Facebook is a media owner, Google is media owner as is SnapChat, Twitter. GM is a diversified manufacturing company, American Airlines is an Airline etc. Calling every company a tech company because they understand code and computing is like calling every company an electricity company because it uses power to operate lights to help workers get their job done.
Well I don't really care about what the author says, But to say Facebook and Google are NOT technology companies is just ridiculous to say the least especially when the former is into VR lately and the latter is quite popular for it's own OS (android).
Now, next the author might try to update the story to include the quote "As dumb as it might sound but I dare say that Microsoft too is NOT a technology company since they make hardwares and operating system which of course can't be categorized under Tech category" . (sarcasm trolls hush! ...)
*sigh* .. What has this world come to with people offering opinions like these .... *sigh*
If you dont care about what the author says then it is sort of a moot point to complain solely about the title. In fact the author specifically addresses the points you have made. For instance General Electric delves into technology but no one considers them a tech company they a multi-national conglomerate. At this point with the diversification that Facebook and Google has they too could be considered conglomerates instead of solely as a tech company.
Well generally a Title is considered a clickbait and not the article itself. Considering this I got a valid point here.
And whatever the Author says to cover up this clickbait title is quite irrelevant to our whole discussion.
Its completely relevant to the discussion. This is presented as an opinion piece because it is. The author is aware of this, everyone who has read it in the comments section of the article is just as aware. 'I dont think Facebook is tech company, allow me to explain my reasoning for this in the body of my article.' The author is not 'covering' up anything he is just presenting his opinion on something 0_o
I have to agree with Stringerbell. The author presented exactly what the opinion of the headline stated. Chill out Devil-X.
You put that very nicely. Cheers.
Not a tech company, yet the purchased Oculus Rift????
You got that right, it is a dangerously large communications corporations with ties to major international governmental unions that censors free speech while sheltering corruption.
