GoPro Isn’t Doomed Yet. But they must become a software company, fast.
GoPro needed to spend heavily in “video editing automation.”
GoPro needs software in spades, far beyond just something to make editing easier. The company that created the first mass-market visceral experience broadcasting device ought to have a hand in every dimension of the current live revolution, not just be one of its few cameras. That requires software. [...] Most consumers already have all the hardware they need to create video; what they need is software to make this infinity of images comprehensible. As the defensibility of hardware declines, GoPro has an advantage few other makers of software have: fans, tens or even hundreds of millions of them.

"The main thing that has caused companies to fail, in my view, is that they missed the future," - Larry Page At TED - Business Insider
"The main thing that has caused companies to fail, in my view, is that they missed the future," Page said. This is why Google is going full steam ahead working on a variety of projects.  "When we bought Android, it was small and I felt guilty working on it, but it was smart, it was the future," he said.

Sharp Drops After Saying Material Doubt on Survival - Bloomberg
SHARP and PANASONIC likely next candidates to fail (bankruptcy, reorganisation, splitting of assets). Their demise is partly to contribute not being able to stay in touch of technology trends. It is a dead end street to compete simply by price where ur products are just a commodity.

Same with Motorola and their cell phone business.
Same with Nokia and their cell phone business.
Same with RIM and their cell phone business.
Same w Kodak and photo business.

- But what makes it even worse for SHARP and PANASONIC is that they a Japanese companies, with Japanese Corp. ORG structures. Also see OLYMPUS.
