Three tech giants dominate their industries.

‘It’s almost cliché to point this out but if data is the ‘new oil’ then what’s the difference between Google and the ‘old oil’ of Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company that was broken in 1905 by Teddy Roosevelt?’ Jonathan Taplin – author of ‘Move Fast and Break Things: How Google, Facebook and Amazon Cornered Culture and Undermined Democracy’ told Salon.
The director emeritus of the University of Southern California’s Annenberg Innovation Lab is one of a chorus of critic arguing that these big three tech giants are getting so big that they need to be broken up someday of not soon.
How to do that is the question and one unlikely to be answered under the current political climate in the U.S.
