Editorial My previous article analyzed some tech companies and their prospects: Microsoft, Intel, HP, Dell, Oracle, Apple, and Google. This article discusses IBM, Amazon, Yahoo!, Cisco, and BMC Software. The goal is to spark a useful discussion. What is your opinion of these companies? Do they have viable strategies for the future?

Google, Yahoo, and other like Facebook are not Tech Companies. They use tech products (Software, Servers, Networking and Chip based products)but dont make a living at it. No, they sell advertising and pump alot of stuff to attract eyeballs to drive higher ad revenues.


It isn't a large percentage of their revenue, but that is mostly because their revenue in advertising is just so incredibly large... They DO sell technology, and they are a big player with some of their products (Google Apps for Enterprise for instance).

If what you were saying is true, then Microsoft isn't a console company, because they only make <10% of their money there. Yet they are...
