  • The Innovator's Dilemma: Is Apple A Sustainer Or Disrupter? [View article]
    Nicely written and good thoughts. 10 years ago I also studied Clay Christensen during my MBA. I still reflect on it frequently in my daily business. I understand your thoughts and appreciate the question; however over the last decade I think businesses have also became more astute to the possible threats from disruptors. The strategy seems to be removal by acquisition. Just think about the power Apple and Google have with the amount of cash they possess. I think often we forget about the power this welds, and the amount of small technologies they acquire. Apple (and others) are very aware of potential disruptors and are proactively seeking them almost to the point of ridiculous proportions, i.e. pursuit of the Kodak patents, etc.

    An interesting study may be to analysis the monopoly effect, Apple, Google, and Microsoft have in the market place. Think about it, RIMM, DELL, HP all on their last leg?
