Which tech company would you bet all of your money on surviving in 10 years time?
It was a question brought up on the most recent "This week in Google" show with Leo Laporte. He asked which company would you bet all of your money on existing, or at least surviving in the next 10 years. It's a great question because of the huge transitions tech companies are going through today. Microsoft maybe the most dramatic, but even without company wide transitions, social and mobile play a huge role in the technology universe.
My guess, but obviously not exclusive to, is Amazon. Not only will they be around in 2022, I think they will be even bigger, with a scope that stretches beyond sales and consumer devices. I can see them aiding small companies with every resource you can imagine, something beyond server capacity and tablets. Amazon will tear many physical stores apart, and replace the way people shop for goods and groceries for a great amount customers.
The next decade will not be kind to technology dinosaurs, and failure to adapt always kills. Some giant tech corporations may be dead in the coming years, but which do you think will outlast tech trends and stay, or even become dominant in 10 years? Also a flip side, which tech giant do you predict goes under in the next decade? (My guess is Nintendo.... don't hurt me.)
