Remember who said the iPhone would fail?
A mobile revolution that has transformed the modern world. Changed everything within less than a decade. The unstoppable rise of mobile apps

The iPhone has been an unqualified success, up to a point. However Android's increasing worldwide market share suggests what has been may not be for long, if even now. (http://tinyurl.com/j84d5z4)

iPhone 8 should be an incredible phone; it better be as the 10th anniversary edition of the product line. But based on recent Apple hardware and (even more) software stumbles, I have my doubts.

I long ago switched to Apple computers currently including 20" and 27" desktops and two 13" Macbook Airs. I briefly owned an iPad but found Apple's rules of what I could and could not do with it too restrictive. Nexus tablets ever since. No other Apple products in the foreseeable future.

Apple has "changed everything" (at least "much") but the question is now, to whose benefit?

Constant turbulence and disruption
- Perhaps the greatest challenge business leaders face today is how to stay competitive amid constant turbulence and disruption

#strategy #leadership  
The time has come to rethink strategy. Constant turbulence and disruption require a new approach to change management.
