Mac vs iPad/iPhone

Yesterday, Apple updated the Macbook Pro line of notebooks (with some pretty cool upgrades) but the frontpage of apple.com continued to show an iPad as it’s main feature.  Marco Arment has an interesting take on what’s going on and why he’s happy about it. Blog post link

Internet Trends Report

I’ve been reading Fred Wilson’s blog, and found some interesting reads. 1. Good read on Successful Web Apps. 2. I disagree with his take on the iPad. I think he’s missing the point of the iPad (which isn’t mainly about the hardware). The killer function of the iPad, imho, is the touch full-screen apps… which […]

Pivoting

Interesting post by Steve Blank (author of Four Steps to the Epiphany) on “pivoting”: http://steveblank.com/2010/04/12/why-startups-are-agile-and-opportunistic-–-p… He notes: “As a founder, you need to prepare yourself to think creatively and independently because more often than not, conditions on the ground will change so rapidly that your original well-thought-out business model will quickly become irrelevant.” And, “most […]
