(updated on 11.03.15 1311 hrs)

In terms of the "hot" software trends, what do the relevant software companies  ( IBM, Apple, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, etc.)  all have in common?

No! ... It is not just about the cloud.

They are all pushing a myriad of "AI" tools (especially the self-learning apps) into their arsenal of technology products. 

IBM has Watson (or Sherlock).   Apple has Siri.  Google has The Brain.   (Click here on information regarding to their AI-based email response tool and click here on information concerning to their RankBrain algorithm.) 
Amazon has Alexa and Facebook has M while Microsoft has Cortana.

So, which brand do you trust?

Comments Summation
While the long term impact from  these AI tools is the incremental elimination of low level jobs in the next five to ten years,  Simultaneously, one could see the lawmakers and the unions trying to increase the pay-rate of those workers before those jobs are totally eliminated

It is only a matter of time that some of the popular fast food chains will begin to automate their services.
