Complete Product Tree is a visual guide of popular tech products, from most to least known. The size of the bubbles indicates market value. The node degree indicates how many related products a product has. Here we use bubbles and nodes to represent products and relations, respectively. The color of bubbles is determine by their current owner (see legend).
Products are positioned along the y-axis base on the year of founding; larger bubbles were found earlier. To make room for new nodes, some older nodes had to be ‘promote’ via relabeling (a common practice in graph visualization). This does not affect the position of the nodes, only their labels. For example, Google Mail was labeled as Gmail until 2014 when they changed it back to Google Mail after Gmail’s 10th anniversary. As a result, the labels of both products are now displayed as Google Mail.
Node sizes indicate product category, based on a flavor-of-the-month categorization. The scale is logarithmic to give more accurate size differences between larger products. Note that some bubbles, such as inkbotdesign, Amazon, and eBay, appear bigger than others due less to their actual popularity and more because they currently have different owners (see legend).
We hope this does not create perceptions about company importance [or] influence but rather reflects on how interconnected a company’s products can be, i.e., a “product portfolio,” just like a start up’s business model might include several ideas that could mature into standalone businesses over time. For example, since its purchase by Amazon, Zappos’s size has been greatly diminished (in the bubble map), while that of Kindle and Alexa have grown. Note: we recently uploaded a new data set to give more accurate size differences between larger products.
This is a work in progress and more products will be add with time. The image/link under each product name is that product’s Wikipedia page if present; otherwise, we used the parent company or creator as the link. See also: Press Kit and Official Site links (most go to Google). We use affiliate links whenever possible, indicated by an asterisk (*) next to the link.
