Google wants to be a company that 'helps you get things done,' but there's an important catch you ne

Listening to Google execs on-stage at its annual developer's conference this week, there was a very clear and deliberate message: "Helpful, helpful, helpful Google wants to be more helpful." The mantra was set into motion by Google CEO Sundar Pichai during his opening remarks on Tuesday Google has evolved from "a company that helps you find answers to a company that helps you get things done" he declared And it makes sense.

Are Apple's services a new era for the company or just a filler before the next industry-changing pr

This article may contain personal views and opinion from the author The past 10 days or so were quite eventful for Apple, but things didn’t transpire in the way most people expected them to, at least not before we got more information about the nature of the March 25 event With the leaks about new Apple products coming steadily, people expected that hardware and software will share the stage at the Steve Jobs Theater That wasn’t the case, however, and if anyone still needed proof that Apple...

Why Apple Is No Longer a Tech Company (And Doesn't Want To Be)

Why Apple Is No Longer a Tech Company (And Doesn't Want To Be)

With its Keynote event in March 2019, Apple made clear that it’s setting course for a new future, one following in the footsteps of Disney, Netflix and, especially, Amazon.
