NEW YORK — It’s been a tough year for technology companies in general, and for startups in particular.

As the year draws to a close, a lot of those companies have been struggling to find their footing, especially with the election, and with the uncertainty around a federal budget and the future of the federal government.

Some have struggled more than others.

But a handful have found a way out, and they’re still doing so.

The winners and losers of this year’s technology-driven business cycles have been: 1.

Nokia and Microsoft The two big names in this year-end tech market are Microsoft and Nokia.

While Microsoft has had its share of tough times, Nokia has been hit harder than most.

The company has been struggling for the last decade, as its devices have struggled to keep up with new innovations.

Microsoft has been looking to the future, but it’s not a future in which its devices can be used as mobile phones.

And Nokia, too, has been a victim of the smartphone age, with a declining share of the mobile market.

Nokia’s share of smartphones worldwide fell from 31 percent in 2007 to 14 percent in 2015, and that trend continues.

The Finnish company has also been struggling with its devices and operating systems, as well as its core business of selling mobile phones to consumers.

In its earnings call last week, Nokia’s chief executive officer, Jim Balsillie, said that “the company is in a unique position in our ecosystem where we have to innovate and we have a long way to go.”

2., which has been around for nearly 50 years, is the largest online retailer in the world.

The e-commerce giant has had some success in the past few years, with strong growth in its Kindle business, which sold more than 100 million devices last year.

But Amazon has also struggled with slowing sales in its e-book business, and in recent months it has been under fire from lawmakers and consumers over its pricing practices and its treatment of employees.

The retailer has been able to push out new products in some cases, but there’s no indication that it’s really catching up with the pace of growth of Apple, Google and others.

Amazon’s shares have fallen over the last few years as well, and investors are concerned that it will lose its edge in a new world.

Amazon is also facing a tax bill that could hit it hard in the coming years.

Amazon has struggled to raise the cash it needs to pay for its growth, and some investors have expressed concern that it won’t be able to afford to continue investing.

3. eBay.

The world’s largest online auction site has struggled for years, especially since it had to deal with the advent of the Internet, and the company has lost a significant amount of market share over the past couple of years.

eBay is now in the middle of a “software apocalypse,” and it has struggled badly to grow its online business as a result.

The online auction business has been in free fall since its debut in 1998, when the company launched eBay for the first time.

Since then, it has lost more than 50 percent of its value.

It was one of the first companies to go public in 1999, and it still remains one of a handful of companies that is worth more than $100 billion.

The big question for eBay is whether it can survive this downturn.


LinkedIn The social networking site was one the most dominant companies in the U.S. in the early 2000s.

By 2010, the company was worth about $300 billion.

But the growth has slowed considerably.

And many of its key players, including its founder, Reid Hoffman, have left the company, with many citing the company’s poor performance as a reason.

LinkedIn’s stock has fallen sharply over the years, and recent investors have been questioning whether it has enough capital to survive.

LinkedIn has also seen its share price fall in recent years as it tries to attract talent, as it is now facing a barrage of criticism about its hiring practices and policies, among other things.

It is also being watched closely by the federal antitrust office.

In a statement announcing the company will close its offices and the headquarters in Seattle, the office said that it “is evaluating options for the company to continue operations in the Seattle area and has requested information from the company regarding potential relocation plans.”


Apple The Cupertino, California-based tech giant has been an increasingly important player in the last year as a consequence of the election of President Donald Trump.

But despite the election results, the Cupertinos struggles in the year ahead are a concern for many investors.

Apple has seen its stock fall over the year, with some analysts warning that it may not be able stay afloat in the long term.

It’s still a very large company, and if it can’t grow its business, then it will not be profitable in the future.

In recent months, Apple has been forced to lay off a significant portion
