Short Bytes: With the huge amount of cash reserves Apple, Google, and Facebook have, it is impossible to believe that they will be overtaken by another tech firm in near future. Steve Wozniak believes that. In fact, he has laid down his predictions that by 2075, all three tech companies are going to be bigger than ever, and it is definitely a possibility.
We can all agree that Apple, Google, and Facebook are three of the biggest tech giants in existence and they have changed the way consumers communicate with one another in their own respective manner. All three companies might be doing extremely well in their own lineup of products and services but having an effective foresight for the future will also pay huge dividends in the future. Now that is exactly what Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, believes will play a pivotal role in their growth.
Wozniak said the following in an interview on Friday (via USAToday) that all three companies have a lot of cash and it would be absurd to believe that they will not exist in the year 2075.
“Apple will be around a long time, like IBM (which was founded in 1911). Look at Apple’s cash ($246.1 billion, as of the end of its last fiscal quarter). It can invest in anything. It would be ridiculous to not expect them to be around (in 2075). The same goes for Google and Facebook.”
Steve Wozniak also predicts that deserts will make the ideal location for cities of the future and will be built from scratch. Looking at how the Middle East has been able to achieve that successfully, we do not see why it will not be a possibility.
He also says that consumers will be interacting with everyday objects in a completely different manner. Since AI continues to evolve, users will be able to communicate seamlessly with smart walls and surfaces in order to entertain themselves.
