''' '' STEEP TECH EARTH '' '''

 : O'' LORD

WITH HONOR AND BLESSINGS I stop to also address O''Captain - His Excellency - Imran Khan,  The Prime Minister of Pakistan:

''Sir, On these ''Ehsaas Scholarships'', please consider giving away a dignified portion in the entire region to all our brothers and sisters in : India, Kashmir, Afghanistan, Iran, Bhutan, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka.................''

''PROUD PAKISTAN, Prime Minister, Sir, will never and can never be true to its Greatness, if it cannot associate and serve a cause higher than itself. God bless!''

TECH'S FOOD CHAIN : The picture is darker the further down tech's food chain you go: A growing number of start-ups are cutting jobs to get their expenses under control. And older tech companies, still profitable but slowly losing inffluence, are struggling to adapt in the changing landscape.

As the rich get richer they are also branching out. They are muscling aside or buying out rivals. And they are locking in the industry's best engineers with payday's smaller companies could never match

Amazon said some weeks ago that it had invested in infrastructure needed to speed up shipping times for its Prime Members to one day from two, raising the bar even higher for retail competitors.

But later days trading on Wall Street showed just how hard it is to stay in the trillion dollar club. Despite Amazon's e-commerce and cloud computing dominance, the company's value dipped just a  bit below $ 1 TRILLION

Apple recently earned billions of dollars to create shows and movies for its video subscription service in a challenge to Netflix, while Alphabet agreed to buy the activity tracker Fitbit for $2.1 billion in November and the analytics software firm Looker for $2.6 billion in June.

''Today's dominant companies have so much power across such a broad array of darkness and continue to leverage that power to expand into new markets,'' said Patrck Spence, chief executive of the speaker maker Sonos, at a congressional antitrust hearing last month in Boulder, Colo.

Sonos has sued Google, accusing Google of infringing on five of its patents, including technology that lets wireless speakers connect and synchronize with one another.

Tech's richest companies seem to be defying a Wall Street assumption that as a company gets bigger, it becomes difficult to find new ways to make money and maintain rapid growth.

Alphabet said profits in the last quarter of 2018 were 19 percent more than a year earlier. Revenues rose 17 percent to $46-1 billion, slightly below Wall Street expectations. The company's stock fell 4 percent in after-hours trading.

To assuage some concerns about sluggishness in its main search ad business, Alphabet disclosed for  the first time detailed revenue figures for its YouTube and  cloud computing units, which are growing faster than the rest of the company. YouTube sold $15.1 billion worth of ads in 2019, up 36 percent , while its cloud computing unit grew more than 50 percent to $8.9 billion. Ad revenue from search increased 15 percent to $98.1 billion.

Gene Munster, a managing partner at Loup Ventures, a venture capital firm in Minneapolis, said it was harder than ever for new challengers because the top incumbents were so effective at ''increment evolution,'' like Apple's building subscription offerings to get with its hardware or Google's branching out  into cloud computing.

The big tech companies skillfully move into new markets with lower prices and more money for marketing than their new competitors. In time they take over.

In 1975, the top 100 public companies snared about 60 percent of the earnings of all public companies. By 2015, that share had jumped to 84 percent, their research showed. they have not updated their numbers since then, but Ms. Kahle. in an email exchange, said she doubted the numbers had decreased.

''There are a lot of small, unprofitable firms and a handful of large, very profitable ones,'' Ms.Professor Kathleen M Kahle, a University of Arizona [finance department], wrote.

MANY EXPERTS foresee these five giant companies competing for $2 trillion in new technology spending over the coming years. It will be hard for the rest of the industry to match that.

''Over the past few years, you've seen a fork in the road between the winners and the losers,'' they say.

With respectful dedication to Almighty God, and then O'' Captain Imran Khan, Students, Professors and Teachers of the world.
