There was a time when technology venture capitalists would not touch a "content" deal. They only funded pure play technology companies. Gradually, as the Internet industry evolved, the notion of "paid content" brought about a fundamental change, leading to many content deals getting funded. Back in the summer of 2005, as I wrote about the emerging trends, I wrote a piece called Twenty-First Century's Best Venture , suggesting that the Harry Potter franchise was one of the best entrepreneurial ventures to have been built in this century. Recently, as I wrote about Turbine , a gaming company trying to ...

Microsoft, stop copying Apple! Your old strategy will work just ...
 Yes, Apple has succeeded with a strategy of vertical integration, but correlation is not causation.  They have not succeeded because of vertical integration, they have succeeded in spite of it (so far). In recent years, almost everything Apple has done has been genius…not necessarily complicated: Apple’s computers are successful because they clearly found a niche of people that like design, aesthetics and being different…then they built on their success and actually grew this market…or rode the naturally growing trend of discerning consumers. Apple’s ipod was successful because at it’s launch ... market research, surveys and trends

president’s dismissal of his famous Pacific general. The e-book publication came only 48 hours after Pres. Barack Obama sacked Gen. Stanley McChrystal over his comments in a controversial Rolling Stone article. The pamphlet-length e-book, culled from material in David McCullough’s 1993 Pulitzer Prize-winning biography Truman , demonstrates a new use of digital technology: the timely back-catalog reissue. Special editions of physical books have to be planned months in advance, but with no printing or distribution requirements, e-books can be turned around in a matter of days, making up-to-the-minute relevance much more feasible. ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Jeff Bezos pitches the Kindle, BookSurge to skeptical mob at Book ...
LOS ANGELES, CA — Jeff Bezos pitched the Kindle to attendees at Book Expo America today in downtown LA, and then sat down with Wired editor and author of The Long Tail Chris Anderson for a little chit-chat. The takeaway? Much like Apple, Bezos uses the euphemism "customer experience" for "vertical integration," especially when it comes to the new Kindle and the requirement that print-on-demand publishers work with Amazon subsidiary BookSurge. After the jump, some choice quotes from before Anderson's questions (presumably from his notes, on regular old paper, pictured here) started to veer into ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Dell Streak: A Smartphone With a Tablet Heart
in the U.S.. The Streak goes against the gradient, with its roomy 5-inch touchscreen and a design that emphasizes its huge potential as an Android-based data device. But it also has a phone, too, and as such, stands to be judged against the latest competitors in the smartphone arena. And that's where the Streak stumbles. After spending some quality time with the device, I found a lot to like when using it for multimedia and data. But, it's lacking as a phone, and the overall user experience was lackluster. My experience with the Streak sums up the devices schizoid nature-is it a ginormous smartphone on steroids (not ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Telecom Market Drivers for 2010-2011? | LinkedIn Answers | LinkedIn
I’ve been speaking with a wide range of Project and Programme Directors (and the like) over the past few months and there seems to be two areas that will see significant investment in 2010: Network Infrastructure to cope with peak data (expected to rise by 66x by 2013) due to data heavy applications and also a drive to increase self-service and profitability (currently one of our clients is finding that as many as 80% of transactions require involvement of a call centre). What other areas do people think we will see being driven forwards in 2010? posted 4 months ago in Telecommunications , Computer Networking | Closed ...
