Elizabeth Warren vow to break big tech companies; Facebook, Google and Amazon attracts hundreds of comment and we’ve listed a few of them below…fill in.
”These companies only got this big because they provide products and services that meets the needs of so many people. All of these companies will eventually be toppled. It’s only a matter of time. My life won’t end if I don’t buy an Apple product, shop at Amazon, share my breakfast on Facebook, or use the many free services from Google. Technology advances very rapidly, so staying on top isn’t a trivial feat. It’s up to these companies to keep up with changes. I can understand when it’s a resource that is needed for survival or is negatively impacting the quality of life for many. In the end this just seems like a precurssor to imposing additional taxes that would simply be passed through to the end users. So who exactly are we trying to help here?” Ninja Stewy.
”I don’t know that I am willing to have Facebook be considered a platform utility, when Twitter, Snapchat, and others provide direct competition. This is a better case for Apple’s App Store, and that is currently being debated by SCOTUS. Breaking them up is too much government interference in the private sector, and would have chilling effects on the economy. Amazon hasn’t even bought any competitors, they keep buying completely new sectors of operation, like with Whole Foods, and their coming Healthcare initiative. That is exactly the kind of acquisition innovation we want to see in the market.” Cbruscale.
”As a Republican it’s been awful since Donnie took office. That said, super excited about the next 12 months. The race to the extreme Left for the Primaries is going to be awesome. Getting my popcorn ready as Warren and others talk up the virtues of Cuba, Venezuela, China, and the former Soviet Union. The race to be the biggest loon has just started and we’re already getting these nutty ideas.” Bj World.
”Mark Facebook, Sundar Google and Jeff Amazon disapprove.”Clie OS.
