I think they are considering "Tech"  companies when business happens on the internet. It greatly reduces the concept of tech companies and technology.
Technology
1. The branch of knowledge that deals with the creation and use of technical means and their interrelation with life, society, and the environment, drawing upon such subjects as industrial arts, engineering, applied science, and pure science.
2. the application of this knowledge for practical ends.
3.the terminology of an art, science, etc.; technical nomenclature.
4.a scientific or industrial process, invention, method, or the like.
5.the sum of the ways in which social groups provide themselves with the material objects of their civilization.

I would consider those "tech" companies more related to Innovation, VAS Companies

I agree, it's a fine line as to what you consider a tech company or not.

If VZW is not a tech company, then Apple shouldn't be.  They had about 66% of the sales from iPhone. Only 10% of sales were from Mac.  What about Visa?  That may not be consumer tech, but it is a the backbone for credit card transactions. Before there was a public world wide web, there was visanet.

Here's the TL;DR version.
"Net neutrality is a longstanding digital principle that internet service providers should treat all web traffic equally and fairly. This means providers cannot prefer one website or service over the other by granting unequal loading speeds or by blocking or slowing content."
Basically, this gives an internet service provider (ISP) the ability to purposefully slow down Netflix or Facebook if it wants to. "Netflix won’t disclose its Day of Action plans but says it will be “noticeable” for its users."
Sounds like they might be inclined to give its audience a taste of what this could be like?

Experts Exchange is on the list with Google, Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and so many more.

Huh... I didn't know there were games over Messenger... Might have to check that out. I wonder if they've got old-school style text adventure games?

Sounds like some cool stuff, but I do start to get worried about Facebook becoming quite a monopoly.

@Andy: Yeah, the HoloLens stuff looks pretty sweet. Too soon for me to be willing to drop $3k on it though. I'd be more inclined at this time towards checking out something like the Acer one that was demoed last month at GDC, but I've seen no way to actually get my hands on one...

Hololens is targeted at the Professional/Commercial sector at present not the SOHO market, Gamer!

When you have used a Hololens, you no longer want to wear a GIMP mask, like the rest!
