The Giants Are Coming...Giants of The Internet!

Politics / Internet Nov 20, 2018 - 06:11 AM GMT

Politics

How would you like to make almost $15,000 profit in 10 seconds!  10 seconds!!

If you are Apple, you do.  And if you own shares in Apple, while an up and down stock price, overall…..it is up.

How about over $6,000 in profit in just 10 seconds.  Amazon does.

And it is not just Apple or Amazon who make this kind of dosh, there are many Internet Giants. 


But of course, we already know this, we read the papers, we know Apple and Amazon are now $1,000,000,000,000 trillion dollar companies!

While these figures and values change and fluctuate as to what many of these “Giants” are worth, they are only going one way, upward.

Providing us some “by the second details” is Loanable, and their infographic shows profits by the world’s largest Internet companies, in a second-by-second real time frame.

Who would have thought 30 years ago, we would be looking at online sales and ecommerce being as huge as it is, hey, we were not even thinking about the Internet back then, just having a home computer was a novelty.

The Fashion of the Internet

It is not just clothing that can become fashionable these days, and the Internet has grown into a monster of fashion.

And one aspect of that fashion of the Internet, is a fashion of how we make purchases.

How we buy is now influenced by the Internet, in a big way.

Until a few years ago, had you heard of “showrooming”?

Showrooming is where we may go to a “brick and mortar” store to physically view and see an item we are considering purchasing; we then however purchase the item online.

Online sales are up and account for a high percentage of over all retail sales, nearly 20%.  That means that one-in-five retails sales is online. You can see why Amazon and eBay are as popular and huge as they are.

This is one reason and also what is feeding the growth of the Internet.

Then let’s talk about the fashion of social media on the Internet.  Between Facebook and Twitter, and other social media, we are creating more and more demand on the Internet, not just from a retail and sales standpoint, but from a social, “hi, how are you doing?” standpoint.

The icing on the Internet and virtual world cake, is Google!

If you need to know the answer to a question, search for anything online, all you need is Google. 

Google is no longer just a search engine, it has become a way of life, and placed itself in our vocabulary of life.

The answer to everything, “just Google it”.

When you take two Giants of the Internet, Google and Amazon, and combine them, what do you get….Alexa!  Amazon’s new personal and digital assistant.

You can ask Alexa any question, and with the power of the Internet, you get the answer.

Want to hear a joke, music, or an audio book, just ask Alexa. 

Could we have imagined all this 30 years ago...not even the best Orwellian minds thought this far ahead, and yet, here we are.

While these companies may be the Giants of the Internet, the real Giant is the Internet.
