Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Emergence of internet brought major changes to the world of innovation and invention, which improved production in industries. An example of the companies which benefited from the internet was the Microsoft. The company increased its sales at greater margins, for instance, the Microsoft software’s and other products became widely sold in all major cities of the world; particularly Africa, as users could easily buy the software or download  it for free from the internet and this greatly increased the use and popularity of Microsoft company limited.

With emergence of a new technology, there must be gainers and losers, and therefore some companies went down due to emergency and use of internet, for instance, the postage company; the traditional method of sending and receiving letters was replaced by mails and internet messages, and therefore the users of the post office services reduced significantly. This was a great lose to the company.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
