  • Netflix's Original Programming Will Not Make Any Difference [View article]
    " it is (literally) impossible to determine if any given piece of content will be successful or not." While that is true, Netflix has immense data on movies and TV shows, so it has a pretty good idea of what will be a hit and what will be a miss. In addition, if Netflix did not move to original programming, there would be nothing that would separate it from other streaming services. Original programming was the only strategic decision for Netflix.

  • Netflix: The Comeback Kid? [View article]
    Exclusive content will separate Netflix from the other content streaming services, and will expand its profit margins. Strategically, it makes the most sense for Netflix to transition into an HBO or Showtime than remain in its highly competitive market.

  • Apple Has Already Won The Tablet Market [View article]
    The iPad is far outmatched by the Surface in the business market. The Surface is far better for productivity: it has a keyboard, office support, and true multi-tasking capabilities. That being said, the iPad has been, and will continue to be, a runaway hit in the consumer market.

    Apple has no need to create exclusive content, it already has a dedicated fan-base. Producing content is just an unnecessary risk.

  • Apple: Content Would Complement iTunes, iTV [View article]
    I do not believe Apple has a pressing need to create its own content, doing so would only burn bridges with the other studios it depends on.

  • Will The iPad Mini Help To Expand The 7" Tablet Market? [View article]
    I do not believe the iPad mini will be a hit. It is significantly more expensive than other tablets its size. The point of the 7" tablet market is to provide bargain-priced tablets, but in no way is the iPad mini a bargain.

  • Will iPads Replace Textbooks In K-12 Classrooms? [View article]
    If anything, I believe it would be the Nook. The Nook is a e-reading centered tablet whereas the versatile iPad could provide distractions for students.
