"When you're young, you look at television and think, There's a conspiracy. The networks have conspired to dumb us down. But when you get a little older, you realize that's not true. The networks are in business to give people exactly what they want. That's a far more depressing thought. Conspiracy is optimistic! You can shoot the bastards! We can have a revolution! But the networks are really in business to give people what they want. It's the truth."

This.

Find a problem, a job to be done. Make the best possible product for the job. Price it so you make a profit. Then it will work, or not.

It's comes with great risk, but great rewards, too. And, you're honest to your users. You do not sell them, nickel-and-dime them, or lie to them, like you would if you shoveled junk to them.

When the gatekeepers are gone, the gates won't keep themselves. Constantly lowering expectations. Constantly lowering standards. We get what we pay for.  

When you commoditize (e)books, publishers have even less incentive to spend money on quality typography. And if your business model is focused on predatory pricing to gain monopoly status, why would you worry about typos?

Because in business, the measure is revenue and, ultimately, profit.

Nobody prevents Samsung from having less products. They choose their strategy, set aside money for ... persuasion, and have the results they have. The same for Apple. They are present in the same markets, so their strategies and results are comparable. It is no wonder that Apple is much more efficient as a company; it is integrated vs componentized organization issue. On another level, it is product driven vs marketing driven approach, but that's less relevant here.

I am not passing value judgement here (well, for lobbying I am). And certainly, this is not cheer-leading. Pissing contests are for pageview-driven click-baiting trolling known as tech journalism. I try to avoid substance-free drivels. I do not always succeed, but I think I'm pretty safe with this one.
