Tech & Everyone Else

In the early days in tech, there were two kinds of tech companies: companies like Intel, who made memory and semiconductors for tech companies like Apple to integrate into their products, and companies like Apple, who built technology and sold it to everyone else.

Clients for most of the tech industry were people and businesses that worked in other industries.  Tech was a small space, only a few players made the foundational building blocks, commonly referred to today as the “picks and shovels,” to run a tech company, and so growing the market position meant building products and services for everyone else.
