This is the Product Death Cycle. Why it happens, and how to break out of it
via bit.ly/1MEHKDc [ can't be everything for everyone ! Aaron Levie (Box, SAAS, Enterprise) in one interview said they did not go ahead with some clients ("Saying NO, is maybe even more important than saying yes.") because they wanted so much change, which would make further update to the whole system a headache/more cost than the client would bring in. ] // "The Product Death Cycle is tricky because it’s driven by the right intentions: Listen to customers and build what they want. People in the Product Death Cycle naturally believe that they are doing the right things, but good intentions don’t translate to good traction. Instead, ask “why?” over and over, to understand the root cause for lack of growth."

Snapchat Solicits Longer Content By Ditching Tap-And-Hold-To-Watch | TechCrunch
bit.ly/1NAmQWu "he's showing that he can make practical decisions that benefit the Snapchat users, even if it means losing something that was fundamental to Snapchat's product itself." // But doesn't he give up the 'attention grab/focus' feature for long-form content and thus also loosing share of the snacking %' !!?? long-term we will see what Snapchat will become and be eventually worth. Because it won't be a Facebook. It could turn out to be a Twitter with problems in monetisation (turning a profit and meeting growth stage investors expectations - current valuation ... at IPO and post-IPO one, two years on.) Gary might be right about putting yourself out of business than letting the other guys do it for you. But Snapchat (Mr Spiegel) may have been forced to abandon its 'differentiation' in order to meet valuation expectations by appealing to a broader potential user base to use it more, like to read news & consumer other types of content than Snapchats ( P2P or B2C versions ).

A defense of Dave Morin | PandoDaily
[1bn consumer apps are more rare than lottery winners. period.] But despite it all, he just didn’t win. It’s crushing evidence of just how hard it is to build the next huge consumer Internet sensation. Mock Morin all you want, but pre-launch Google valued Path higher than it likely is valued today. If he was wrong to believe he could build the mobile Facebook, so were some of the smartest people in the Valley. So what did Morin do so wrong? Some parts of his thesis were right, but exact manifestations of that thesis weren’t. People were longing for a mobile social network focused on photos. People were longing for a Facebook-other. Just not the one he created. You can never predict how products will resonate. Did he focus too much on pleasing Valley early adopters while Snapchat and Whisper were resonating with teens, and Whatsapp largely got its legs through an international audience? Perhaps.

It could sell more stuff, had all this inventory and huge staff (expenses) that ate up less and less cash flow till it ran into a loss of 500m in its last year. During its heyday, corporate boggle heads ran the shop, who were not interested into investing and pushing the envelope and risking a little (known risks, curtailed/mitigated) ... didn't need to risk the shop. ... But after all it was the beginning of the home entertainment that are now video games. And history has shown, that the innovator (first out of the door) does not always win the whole game/industry. See modern Silicon Valley examples in MySpace, Bebo, Friendster, .... Atari also was a corner stone of Silicon Valley of today; casual and a meritocracy (if you exclude gender & minorities).

The debate over so-called internet trolls - people who use social media accounts to abuse others - has been attracting headlines for several years now. The daughter of actor Robin Williams signed off Twitter following taunts about her father's suicide. Screenwriter Jane Goldman deleted her account following abuse of her family. And Sara Payne, whose daughter Sarah was abducted and murdered in 2000, said she was leaving the social media network after years of online harassment.

Foursquare may be challenged, but Crowley’s job is not in jeopardy | PandoDaily
|| http://pando.com/2014/07/23/foursquare-is-dead-long-live-foursquare/ || To the latter first: Foursquare is mostly considered a failure because its hype was so great. But the company clearly has real value. With 50 million users worldwide and more data on their physical movements and social habits of these users that all but a handful of companies, it’s highly unlikely that Foursquare just goes away. As I wrote at the time of the Waze acquisition: …the data Foursquare is collecting on where people go and what they do is potentially more varied, rich, valuable and usable for different applications. That’s particularly the case when you factor in Foursquare’s API which is also used by Path, Instagram, Uber, Evernote, Garmin, Vine, Magellan, and – you guessed it! – Waze. [...] Selling or not selling is such a brutal decision — and I commend when entrepreneurs who don’t — because success even after a huge offer is still so uncertain. !!

YouTube Music’s Head Quits, a Setback to Paid Service - Digits - WSJ
LaRosa is the second person in charge of YouTube’s music service to leave over the past 12 months. The other, Nikhil Chandhok, left last fall according to his LinkedIn profile. Chandhok was a director in charge of music, paid subscriptions and live streaming, according to the profile. Both departures resulted in part from frustrations that YouTube has been unable to launch its music subscription service in the year-plus since the first version of it was developed, according to a person familiar the matter. Those delays have resulted from internal arguments about how the service should be designed, including what features YouTube should charge users for and how the service should be integrated with the rest of YouTube. [Is another testament that YT is 4 Larry Page only 2nd Class [no urgency]. GOOG wont be hurt by those incidents, but moral & motivation suffers.

Another bad loop. [....] [... the user divide ...] It seems like we have two opposing trends going on simultaneously. On one end of the curve rabid sharing is driving an attention cycle of seconds but on the other end people are reading and watching more.

growth can't be infinite in a finite world population.

[...] getting over the 1bn figure is hard. Instagram. ... WhatsApp ... FB was overpaying (19bn) in order to have it, be relevant in that space, and not let it have anybody else. PERIOD. Was Strategic as Instragram was for Pictures (vertical). [...] Patent system is, can be, stifling in many ways. Because it serves as distraction from the Vision, the Product and the Execution.

At Google, Larry Page Finds His Right-Hand Man - The Information
When Mr. Page tried in vain to convince WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum not to sell the messaging startup to Facebook for $19 billion two months ago, it was Mr. Pichai who accompanied Mr. Page to the high-stakes talks rather than Vic Gundotra, who was in charge of Google’s social products and would have seemed a more fitting choice. [...] // @nest founder & former Apple exec @tfadell now 'owns' @Google's consumer hardware division, acc to @theinformation (via @verge); Google SVP Sundar Pichai reportedly dismantled most of @Android's hardware initiatives to give Fadell 'creative freedom' w/ future products following the acquisition of Nest || Reply :: The Information is 100% wrong!

Tesla Opens Up Patents to Promote Electric Vehicles | Re/code
Elon Musk's legacy will not just be Tesla Motors and SpaceX. It will also be this, being concerned about the future, that the velocity of which the electric car spreads to the consumer around the world isn't steep enough in order to make a dent in the world ... in the world's carbon emission reduction / global warming. He puts the common and public good before profits and WallStreet. Knowing and banking on the Tesla Brand and still having the first mover advantage in 5 years. Elon Musk picks his fights really well. Marrying a capitalistic profit motive of a company that was on the brink of failure and the public good/common good of reducing carbon footprint of the world. Establishing, enabling industry standards. Preventing technological incompatibilities and silos. Trying to prevent consumer frustration and friction. This is Win-Win. If Wall Street tanks the Stock this Friday, we should all give up ... on Wall Street already. // http://onforb.es/1mNg7Jw

Why did it take so long for Windows to support a taskbar on more than one monitor? - The Old New Thing - Site Home - MSDN Blogs
Features do not exist in a vacuum, and decisions about features necessarily take into account the other features under consideration. For a feature to be adopted, it not only must be valuable enough in itself, but it almost must provide a better cost/benefit ratio than any other features under consideration. While the benefit of a multi-monitor taskbar is high, you have to scale it down by the percentage of users who would be able to take advantage of such a feature. I don't know the exact numbers, but I would hazard that fewer than ten percent of users use a multiple-monitor system on a regular basis, so any benefit would have to be ten times as great as the benefit of features that have broader use. + http://blog.eventjoy.com/post/87807448121/on-startups-how-we-develop-new-features-extremely-fast

DLD NYC 14 - Winners/Losers in a Digital Age (Scott Galloway) - YouTube
Apple knows that competition is catching up faster and faster in terms of design and functionality etc etc. They hired 2 fashion people already (burberry and from LVHM). And to differentiate the brand further (price/status symbol - above middle class) and to keep selling it's Apple Products ... including wearables (Watch & Headphone) they hired those key people or b(r)ought them into the mothership. They could have long ago bought personal cloud storage companies and other stuff to add to its portfolio bla bla bla.... but that 'Software', you can't display - show off - walking around downtown manhatten. Wearables, phones, tablets - you can. ... Apple focuses on their core competencies - software like iTunes is only 2nd class, that is why it still doesn't stream. >> “They want Jimmy and they want Dre,” said the source. “He’s got fashion and culture completely locked up.” ( http://techcrunch.com/2014/05/22/apples-beats-deal-is-happening-and-its-a-dre-acquihire/ ) + !!! v=NP0P2BT0vTc !!!

Path’s kiss of death compliment: “It’s hugely popular in Indonesia!” | PandoDaily
[+ Raising Too Much Money for a too small product and market!?] It may be the beginning of the end for a company that was once offered $125 million to sell to Google – in a high priced acquihire – less that six months into its existence and before the company even launched. [...] So, what went so wrong? The answer seems to be a combination of poor execution, an excessive focus on design over utility (not to mention differentiation), and a keeping up with the Joneses desire to spend lavishly. [...] The company has always been a reflection of Morin, including his obsessiveness over design and his proclivity for spending. For example, Path reportedly built its team with a designer to developer ratio of 1-to-2, as compared to an industry average that is likely closer to 1-to-20 (or even lower, although precise figures are hard to come by). [[ ~ Spending for the wrong means to an end. ~ ]] [[ ... Inside the bubble that is the Valley and the Fetish ... ]]
