Google Versus the Competition

This is the third and final part of the How Google Works series. In the previous parts, we went over how Google and their products have grown and evolved over the years, along with how they earn their money and how both Google’s data centers and employees work together to provide a seamless experience.

The last part of this series will go over how Google stacks up against the competition, and how one of the largest tech companies in the world manages to stay competitive.

How Google Compares to the Competition


So What Happened?

In the early 1900s, electric cars were quite a common sight. They were quiet, much more refined than the early gasoline motors, you didn’t have to manually crank the car to get it started, and you didn’t have to smell any exhaust. It seemed like electricity would be the future of automotive technology, and that there was practically no reason to buy a traditional gasoline vehicle.

That is, until the electric car lost its edge.

As the years went by, many factors, such as electric starters, cheaper oil, and the fact that battery technology had pretty much plateaued during this…


Monetization and What Goes on Behind the Scenes

This is the continuation of the “How Google Works” series and it will cover more factors that contribute to how Google works. While the first part focused on Google’s growth as a company, this 2nd part will focus on Google’s monetization, and all the different areas they get money from, along with everything that actually allows it to function on a daily basis, such as the data centers and employees.

And Why it’ll be Difficult to Stop

On April 20, Apple unveiled some of their next generation of products, pretty much all of which were powered by their M1 chip. This includes the next-gen iMac, along with the iPad Pro. When you factor in the previously released M1 MacBook Air and Pro, and the M1 Mac mini, this now totals to 5 different devices you can get the M1 chip with.

And perhaps the best part for Apple is that this number could probably double within the next few years.

But Why’s the M1 Chip Such a Big Deal?


The Evolution of the Search Engine and Their Other Services

This is the beginning of a 3-Part series breaking down how the largest search engine on the planet functions on a daily basis. In this series, we’ll go over how Google has evolved since its introduction in 1998, Google’s other services, how they earn their money, and finally all the things that go on behind the scenes to give people a smooth experience.

In this part, we’ll look at how Google has changed over the years and everything it’s resulted in today.

Google’s Evolution


Nevertheless, It’s a Double-Edged Sword

Technology is both a blessing and a curse. On paper, technology provides us with plenty of conveniences and gives us the ability to do things that weren’t before possible.

In reality, however, it has come at a cost.

This cost is that technology has become amazingly addictive, serving as a distraction in most people’s lives. In other words, technology has made us lazy and unproductive due to its added conveniences, keeping us from unlocking our full potential.

Yes, I Learned the Hard Way

A few years ago, being the young ambitious kid that I’m sure we all were at some point, I wanted to start a business. So after countless hours of research, I concluded that repairing smartphones would be the way to go. My reasoning? It seemed like one of the best low-risk options.

After assuring myself this was a good idea, I managed to muster up the courage to present my “sales pitch” to my parents.

Surprisingly, they were pretty open to the idea. The problem was, I had not the slightest idea how to repair a phone, or pretty much…


Sell the Mercedes Now, Buy the Bentley Later

Money. Let’s talk about it.

It’s something that we all need, to some extent, and something that a good portion of people want. Money is also something most of us wouldn’t mind having more of. And, at least on paper, it should be simple to get. Yet money seems to have a strange side to it, as it appears very few people have actually figured out how to make enough of it to be considered ‘wealthy’.

Would it surprise you if I said 8% of American adults are millionaires?

If you put 13 random American adults in a room, there’s…


How the Finest Car Brands in the World May Soon Become Obsolete

When you think of your dream car, chances are, it probably wears a German badge. Even if you aspire to own a Bentley or even a Rolls Royce, both of those brands’ parent companies are German.

It’s hard to argue against the idea that brands such as Mercedes, BMW, Audi, and Porsche continue to be leaders in the car industry, striking a great balance between luxury, technology, performance, and, of course, a little clout. Needless to say, I don’t think anyone would complain about the opportunity to own one of these cars.

But what could jeopardize the future and appeal…


Why it’s Not Your Fault and How You Can Fix It

Chances are, you wouldn’t be willing to delete every social media app on your phone. Whether it’s YouTube or Instagram, or TikTok, the reality is that we spend hours upon hours scrolling through them each week.

Some of us may realize there’s a problem, while others may not. Some may even think there’s something wrong with them or feel guilty about their inability to simply put down their devices and enjoy life outside of a screen.

But what if I told you that this is supposed to happen?

What if we lived in a world where every single tech company…
