According to Recode editor-at-large Kara Swisher, one of Silicon Valley’s biggest problems right now is its lack of competition. That big tech companies like Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google have become too dominant and have thus stifled competition and creativity.

Literally, at every instant of time, we are surrounded by technology. Whatever you are working or resting, you are always using technology. It is used everywhere and all the times. Its use has made life easy. We need technology. It’s important. Technology has boosted every industry. Businesses have grown, creating more employment opportunities. Advancements in technology have led to the evolution of newer and faster modes of transport and communication. The application of technology has boosted research in fields ranging from generics to extraterrestrial space. The computer and Internet technologies are ubiquitous. They have changed every sector; be it medicine, tourism, education, entertainment or any other. Technology has touched every aspect of life, making it easier, better and different. Technology has changed living. It has changed the way people communicate. Communication systems have evolved from pigeons carrying messages to emails and instant messages that traveling distance in seconds. Cellular technology and satellite communication have increased communication speeds and made “connecting” easier. At the heart of every piece of technology is automation. Technology automates the most complex of processes, be it in communication, education, medicine or any other industry. Nothing else has changed living the way technology has. And that’s exactly why technology is so important today and will always be.
