It's also interesting that IBM isn't mentioned.

Does IBM have a consumer interface? I think they gave it up when they abandoned the PC. Do they have a tablet? A cellphone?

They deal with commercial and industrial clients. Perhaps their expertise can be brought to the consumer market but if so likely with someone elses name on it.

Jeff Bezos and Amazon seem to be visionaries when it comes to retail. His consumer interfaces are popular and industry leaders.

Steve Jobs saw a need for that connection and followed into Apple stores. But that is a tiny fraction compared to Amazon.

Many famous computer companies have no consumer interface. They are at the mercy of the providers that have it.
