Yours truly on Apple’s Secret Sauce Of Success And The Desperation Of Product Differentiation in Mac360.
Desperation and differentiation are sometimes strange bedfellows. Avis vs. Hertz, anyone? Microsoft is opening Microsoft stores. Amazon and Google are selling tablets at manufacturing cost in a desperate move to slow Apple’s industry dominance. To date, no competing company has concocted a sauce of success to compete with Apple.
By trying to be like Apple in some respects, competitors appear to differentiate themselves from other competitors, not Apple.
Amazon should buy Radio Shack.
