European Tech Is:

European Tech - top of the worldWhat is European Tech you may ask?

Well, European Technology is: An independent blog working towards improving your knowledge of the growing European Tech market.

  • An independent blog working towards improving your knowledge of the growing European Tech market.
  • A Blog where I can air out my dirty laundry with the frustrating world of living on 220 current coming from a 110 background.
  • A forum for those who are looking for a place to ask questions about their electronics and technology problems in Europe.
  • Is your phone broken? This is a place to decide if it’s worth fixing, having it fixed or is it time to replace the outdated piece of information technology.

I have an uncle who worked for many years for Siemens in the British Isles and before and after that he was an engineer for Siemens in the US. While the tech that Siemens produces is not necessarily what most would consider a tech company these days, it seems that technology is more about programming these days then about physical engineering. Siemens, a German-based company, grew out of a telegraph automating system designed by the Siemens family who began building an infrastructure that spanned from the British Isles to the cold regions of Russia (an area rivaling that of the United States).

Siemens is one of thousands of tech companies that now hold a large portion of the world market with regards to technology and have come from Europe. Tech.eu has a great article illuminating the American and global mind to the presence of European technology.

Consider these European Technology Companies:

  • Yandex
  • Nokia
  • Opera Software
  • Criteo
  • AVG Technologies
  • Spotify
  • Deezer
  • Skype
  • SoundCloud
  • Dailymotion
  • Teambox
  • Wix
  • Leapfrog

These are just a few of many very successful tech companies. Vodafone, is one that has carved out a very large niche in the European telecommunications market. They have their finger on the pulse of many other developing technology companies. It might be good for you to consider the cultures out of which solid engineering have grown and inspect the growth of the US markets. One will find that all areas of technological strength grew out of countries that had strong engineers and scientists given to the study of physics and chemistry. Let us not forget this and be thankful for the influence that European Tech has had on the American Tech world.…
