Apple is cannibalizing the PC industry with high quality iPads as well as attractive, excellent quality consumer Macs at decreasing prices, aiming to rule the next generation of devices.

No matter how poorly they're treated by technology companies, the music industry has nobody to blame but itself for its position of impotence.

Pandora and other filthy rich executives and investors are doing very little to change the dystopian relationship between Internet radio and the music industry.

If Pandora doesn't sell out, it gets boxed out. It's tough to win with a static strategy against the big boys in technology and media.

Yep, you've got to wonder what Tim Westergren was thinking exit strategy-wise. He's been selling off his stock holdings, so I think he realizes the trap Pandora is in. The core music genome IP is  brilliant but no longer unique. His attempts to define the service as radio via other means have failed as powerful interests have discovered they can use the rules of digital to harvest dollars from Pandora, making musicians feel like they are getting cheated by both. See my proposed solution in a response to Radio Ink magazine here back in October 2012 --  https://plus.google.com/+BruceGoren/posts/RuSg7JVtGD8

Just because the media loves Twitter doesn't mean it's ubiquitous enough to achieve Facebook-like success.

The Jeff Bezos strategy of knocking off hardware ideas from other technology companies appears to be wearing thin.

The race is on between State and Federal Government, Apple, Google, Adobe, and now Amazon to stick a permanent taxation subscription model cyber hand in your pocket for a virtual catheter emptying your bank account into their Software As A Service coffers. Anything left over when you die will be vacuumed up by $$$.gov, see the fine print of Obamacare / MediCal / Medicare here -- https://plus.google.com/113983902035072067923/posts/FZMi1v33v3F

Dick Costolo needs to step back and admit he's in over his head as CEO of Twitter. The time has come to sell to Facebook.

If the original concept has room to grow, why is Starbucks expanding in ways dissociated from its core brand?

There's no company with a stronger existing core -- and ready to extend its dominance -- than Apple. iPhone 6 leads the way. And nothing else matters.

At Yahoo!, Mayer has opened the door to a potentially lucrative space. But there's more work to be done.

Farouk did an excellent job. He had my vehicle in and out one hour ahead of schedule with fantastic service. He also keep me up-to-date on my options going forward by letting me know when my service plan runs out so I can schedule future appointments accordingly. He went the extra mile. Much appreciated.
