Technology moves so fast that it doesn’t matter if you keep making the same beautiful products, you will fall behind. Biggest example, Apple.
Two weeks ago, Apple’s stock went down 12% (biggest fall to date) even though they had one of their best quarters to date. I’ve had the first iPod, switched from BlackBerry Pearl to the iPhone 3G, upgraded to the iPhone 4S, bought a Macbook Pro, and looking to buy an iPad Mini 2 (when released). No I’m not an Apple fanboy, they just knew how to persuade me into buying their products. It’s their style, design, attention to detail, and marketing that makes people buy Apple products. Many people also believed and trusted Steve Jobs’s vision. The biggest question that many people are asking is, can Apple survive post-Steve Jobs?
