Celebrity Geeks

Tags : 

The Internet age has brought us a huge crop of “Celebrity Geeks” – “techies” that have acquired celebrity status. More often than not, they gain celebrity status through success and achievement in an area of technology.

Bill Gates

Of course, no celebrity geek article can be written without mentioning Bill Gates.
I feel confident in saying that Bill Gates through his Windows software completely changed the world! There are not many people that will die with such an accolade beside their name. Windows technology put the use of personal computers in the hands of the every day person for the first time in history. Not only was Gates able to make computers easier for the every day person, he was strategic enough in his thinking to be able to get this accomplishment into their hands. Bill Gates has always been very generous when it comes to charitable donations. These days he is semi-retired and focuses his energies on his charitable organization.

Jeff Bezos

Who could ever have anticipated that an online book store could be so successful? Sometimes it’s not so much about selling the right product as it is about getting the selling of the product right. Amazon.com was able to offer the most convenience, with the fastest delivery and the lowest prices to those that chose to buy from their web site. They completely left the competition in the dust. The rest as they say is history!

Mark Zuckerberg

Mark was a college student when he started Facebook. Facebook was always popular but there were certain decisions made along the way that served to sky-rocket both the popularity and the widespread use of the web site. Originally, it was a web site only for Harvard students, then Ivy League students, then any college student could sign up and so it went on. When Facebook was opened up to any user, it sky-rocketed to success. More recently, Facebook began to be offered in languages other than English. This too, boosted the popularity and the prevalence of Facebook users. The thing that makes this web site popular is that it is easy to use, it is light and quick to surf and it is free of bugs. With Facebook, literally all of your friends worldwide can be found in one place.

The great thing about today’s technology is that everyone has access to it. Who will be the next big thing in technology, who knows? Pair a great idea with good business sense and it could be you… only time will tell.

The chances are good that when you browse the web, you’re doing so via Google’s own particular browser, Google Chrome. Chrome has anywhere between 47% to 60% of the browser market sewn up.

Apple sells itself as a premium brand, both in style terms, but also for the quality of the computing equipment it sells. That’s a proposition that can very much become quasi-religious for some folks, although few would suggest that Apple sells bad computing equipment. Wherever you sit on that spectrum, there’s no doubting that consumers… More
