Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple and Microsoft. Call Them Tech Frenemies for Life

This article in the WSJ is great in that it shows that "big tech" platforms compete against each other.  There are some really great charts.

As the article explains:

Big Tech’s critics say the industry’s giants wield too much power over the lives of internet users. The companies often argue in response that they face enormous competition, often from each other, and need to continue innovating to remain relevant.

The reality, as these charts show, is an interplay of collaboration and competition that helps to shape the extent and nature of Big Tech’s clout. And that interplay is evolving, as the companies increasingly encroach on one another’s turf to build and protect their dynasties.
