Nothing to do with Fantasy: Interesting talk on tech Giants

Most of us are tech users, if not enthusiasts, I'd think.
My boss sent this link today, and I found the presenter fun and the content fascinating.

Enjoy.

Interesting but very USA centric (30% of the worlds economy after all) Shipping is perhaps less of an issue for Amazon as their growth is in downloads. Social media is facebook full stop and like all social media the value is only there while it is percieved. No real assets no product except it's users and no long term future as people tire of being an ad target for products they become less able afford.

Form over function is the message and thats not surprising as the guy makes his money maximising profits for multinationals.
