Check Out The Best Tech Companies To Work For In The World This 2018 1

Glassdoor has published its annual list ‘Employees Choice Awards’, a ranking of the 100 best companies to work for in 2018, in the United States. The social network giant Facebook was the undisputed king of this year, not only as the best technology company to work but the best in the whole world. Meanwhile, the tech giant Apple fell 48 places in the ranking. Last year it was number 36, and this time it was 84. This list is based on votes from the employees themselves.

This is not the first time that Facebook has earned this ‘top’ of companies, in the 10 years that the firm has been doing the ranking, according to VentureBeat. It was ‘winning’ in 2011, 2012, 2017, and now 2018. In other years the title was won by Airbnb (2016), Google (2015) and Twitter (2014). But, curiously, neither Airbnb nor Twitter are on this year’s list. The tech giant Google did qualify, but it’s no surprise because the company has always been included.

The technology sector in the United States seems to be one of the best to work with, as 28 companies entered the top 50 this year. In addition, the representation of the industry is quite high, compared to other sectors. For example, ‘retail’ only entered 11 companies; health, 11; consultancies, 6; finance, 6; tourism and travel, also 6 companies.

So here’s the list of the best technology companies to work for in 2018. The first number indicates the position in the general list, and the second is the rating that the company had, being 1.0 the lowest rating and 5.0, the best. You can check the general list here.

The dark side of the industry
In spite of the excellent qualifications that their employees give to the technology companies, there are still many reports that denounce injustice conditions within them. For example, many of the big companies like the tech giant Google, Facebook and Apple, have had incidents because of the supposed little diversity that exists among their employees. Although significant efforts have been made to increase the population of women, ethnic communities and minorities in general, there is still much to be done for the industry.

Additionally, the tech giant Apple was recently denounced by its employees in China, workers of Foxconn, the supplier of the company in Asia. According to some young ‘practitioners’ in that country, Foxconn forced them to work for 11 hours a day putting together an iPhone in a factory in Zhengzhou, China. This complaint ended in the company suspending extra work hours for employees.

But on the bright side , Who wouldn’t want to work at Facebook. I’m really surprised Amazon isn’t here.

Google Stadia – The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? – Reader Opinion

Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 3

A few weeks ago, Google announced the release of Google Stadia a new state of the art gaming platform that would change gaming as we know it apparently.

Google Stadia

This has been met with a lot of skepticism in the gaming community if this is going to actually work but I believe Stadia has what it takes to change the whole console gaming model that we have been used to for years, However, it would take some time to actually give Microsoft and Sony a run for their money.

Google Stadia Controller

Google Stadia actually got me thinking Sony’s Playstation and Microsoft’s Xbox would have a strong problem to contend with when it fully launches this year. Google Stadia’s cross-platform play is something I’m looking forward to, so you can play hardware intensive games on a system or phone with low specs.

Imagine playing PUBG or FIFA on a 1GB RAM Phone or Laptop and it runs without any lagging or glitches. So it’s practically goodbye to having to get a new system to play some games if they are available on Stadia.

I decided to put out this question to you guys on facebook and I was pretty impressed with the replies I got.

Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 4

Apeh Ikechukwu said – Even if it will be the beginning of the end for PlayStation 4 and Xbox, it will take time A very long time for it to gain popularity and to be accepted by all.
What if it becomes more expensive? That you have to pay huge to access it?

George Oz said – I don’t think to gain popularity is a problem, the announcement alone gathered enough publicity online. And yes it is definitely the end for others Like x-Box and co…Sometimes let’s learn to think Outside the Box.
#MyOpinion🚶🚶🚶🚶🚶

Osazeme Usen said – Stadia will take quite a long while to catch on. Internet speed is still an issue in most nations of the world. In the long run, stadia will eventually be cheaper than owning a console and purchasing games but that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

Olusola Glory Olamide said – Before we throw those Xboxes, PlayStations, Nintendo Switches and stuffs to the bin of history we have questions to answer.
Will most gamers’ broadband connections be fast enough to make a streaming service of that proposition? Will developers all come on board? And is Google the right company to trust with the future of the games industry? Though we’ve got Apple on board and Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon are also in the launch plus Sony Nintendo and others won’t stay put.

ューセッ州 小岩 マサチ said – I feel we will have to pay for most of the games…and Nigeria’s 4g speed is about 2mb/s.

Samuel Jarvis Adeyemi said -Stadia is a good innovation from Google and I think it’s great since gaming could be done on a device, they said it would be super fast even cheating the speed of light in 4k Res without a glitch.
Anyways Google is the software boss, I think they can do it.

I hope Xbox and PS4 meet up but cloud gaming is not really their stuff. And Google has the resources.

Swiss Alex said – well mainly I would say Google Stadia is a welcome development but Xbox and the ps4 has to upgrade too

Google Stadia Reader Opinion – Join The Conversation

Google Stadia looks like something that would work very well in countries with very fast broadband connections for now. Hopefully, Google would find a way to bridge the gap and fix things before it gets rolled out to Africa and Asia. Nevertheless, it’s a win for gamers with this. So what’s your take on this?

At the moment, Oppo’s SuperVOOC is the fastest wired charger with its 50W speeds at 10V/5A, but Xiaomi is coming up something crazier and different that can charge a dead battery to 100% in just 17 minutes.

Here is a video posted by Xiaomi’s brand president Lin Bin, it shows a phone with 4000mAh battery charged fully in just 17 minutes.

Xiaomi has compared this to OPPO’s 50W (10V/5A) Super VOOC Charging that charges 3700mAh battery up to 65% in 17 minutes.

This was introduced as the world’s fastest smartphone charging tech that can charge the phone up to 92% in 30 minutes.

For comparison, Huawei’s upcoming 55W Super Charge fast charging technology for the Mate X’s 4500mAh battery will need just 35min to fully charge the device.

Xiaomi’s new Super Charge Turbo technology is currently in testing stage and will take some time to reach the market… it will be announce few hours from now at an event.
