30 Dec Amazon, Apple May Surpass Google After GDPR Takes Effect
A tech writer from a popular tech publication recently pointed out that Google might get left behind by Amazon and Apple once the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect May next year.
WIRED magazine’s Saul Klein explained that Google and Facebook’s business models are heavily reliant on their user’s personal information, unlike Apple and Amazon, and are therefore more likely to get hurt by the upcoming GDPR.
Klein also predicted that companies will be changing the ways they collect and use user data, and this will largely be dictated by pressure from governments.
