boycotting google and apple would be very hard since they monopolised mobile phones. intel would also be very hard if you wanted to use a computer. outside of tech, things are easier

If your in an American public school Google is unavoidable. We use Google Drive and related services all the time for schoolwork.

We're also stuck with proprietary browsers and search engines without the use of a VPN.

I was also thinking Google. Blocking Google APIs will cause numerous websites to break.

Most pharmaceutical companies and other abusers of imaginary property laws (IP laws). They gain a government-sanctioned monopoly on something, and in the case of pharmaceuticals, this can often be life-saving medicines or treatments in general.

an ISP would be really hard. cysco foods if you eat out would also be really hard. companies like 3m and honeywell that make all sorts of weird shit would also be really hard

Most internet providing companies, even more so since they can have a monopoly of a single area.

Fucking Walmart. Given where I live and my income bracket, I'm pretty much fucked. But then again, given how massive and interwoven most corporations are, I'm not sure if there's any way of escaping them. Heck, I'm not even sure how much conflict there is between them. It all may just be a form of roleplay to sucker people.

Any company that is a monopoly for your area is very hard to boycott. If you don't want to boycott any company in particular, but rather an entire industry, then grocery stores, utility companies, clothing stores, and real estate companies would be the most difficult to boycott, since they supply basic human needs.

groceries can be taken from skips, clothing can be shoplifted, real estate can be squatted, utilities can be siphoned off... it's a hard way of living, but not impossible.

Eventually GMO companies like Monsanto could very well become unavoidable thanks to gene transfer between plants.
