It’s Google + Snapchat, Apple + Tesla and Microsoft + Facebook. But why can not they come together? For some reasons, the possibility that the perfect piece of the modern technology world can actually come together while still at the top is very, very difficult. Let’s find out in this interesting tech news.
Google and Snap
Google needs to face a heartbreaking truth: none of its social products are not failed. GTalk, Hangouts, Duo, Allo … turn out to be forgotten. Google+ has long died, right in the estrangement of all other Google services.
With Google, buying another company to counterbalance Facebook in the social field is the most affordable option. The most affordable option would be the Snap.
Why? Snap attracts users with a very different application thinking (agility, visual direction, cool experience). Snap has a lot of good ideas. Snap and Google share a common rival: Facebook, who has always copied Snap ideas to Instagram, Messenger and, of course, the main Facebook app. What Snap needs now is a genuine user community that extends Snapchat’s global reach. Google is the only power that possesses this capability.
Apple and Tesla
Tesla’s $50 billion empire is built on hope rather than profits or a smooth machine. Still, no one knows how many hundreds of thousands of Model 3 orders will be solved. Any field that can bring the future for Tesla requires a lot of money. But in essence, Tesla is still a startup with a lot of good ideas and the iron will that the world has to change.
That is the will of Steve Jobs to overcome the obstacles of the telecommunications industry to create the iPhone shock. But now Steve Jobs has left, and Apple is no longer the power to shape the world technology market. If it comes to the names that make the turning point for the global hi-tech market, it could only be Amazon and Tesla.
The combination of Apple and Tesla would therefore be great. Apple has enough money to move Tesla forward and again shape the future. That is not to mention the user experience, refined, simple and hidden many of the advanced technology of the two companies is quite similar.
Facebook and Microsoft
Facebook and Microsoft should be combined by both together have the greatest common enemy is Google. Facebook is looking for ways to overtake Google’s advertising revenue, while Microsoft has received several bitter words from Google in terms of search and operating systems.
While hating Google, Facebook and Microsoft are not at odds with each other. Microsoft’s main dish is in the operating system, cloud, Office and enterprise services. Facebook also recruited users with social networking and messaging applications, which almost never conflicted with any Microsoft product except for Skype. Most importantly, Microsoft has little interest in advertising.
Why association is almost impossible?
Unfortunately, they are very unlikely. The giants are not difficult to recognize the potential problems when combined into one.
The first issue is the self-respect of each piece. Apple also changed the world, Tesla also changed the world. Why Tesla must become Apple?
Next comes the operational model. A good example is Google buys Motorola deal. Motorola has a tradition of very good hardware quality, and Google is the boss of Android. But when combined, Google is so afraid of Android hardware partners that it treats Motorola badly instead of running its own subsidiary. As a result, within three years, Motorola has once again changed owners.
Finally, there is a personality problem. Every technology giant is led by a strong personality. And it’s hard to imagine when Mark Zuckerberg is going to work with Satya Nadella. Will Elon Musk endure the direction of Tim Cook? 99% is not.
For these reasons, the possibility that the perfect piece of the technology world can actually come together while still at the top is very, very difficult. Want to wait for Tesla to Apple? Maybe it’s time for Elon Musk to go into dead end.
