Amazon and Microsoft information dominated the pages of GeekWire through the month of July. The truth is, each single one of many top tales for the month was tied not directly to one of many firms.
It virtually appears as if there’s a battle happening proper now in Seattle for the top spot in tech, not to point out the battle for good workers. Microsoft continues to be the larger of the 2 firms, with a market worth of $265 billion. However, as we reported, Amazon, valued on Wall Road at $137 billion, is about to surpass Microsoft in worker depend.
Right here’s a glance again on the top tales of the month on GeekWire, based mostly on web page views.
