What to Make of Amazon's Work Practices? | Bothsides of the Table
It’s best encapsulated in a famous Jeff Bezos quote, “You can work long, hard or smart, but at Amazon.com you can’t choose two out of three,” [...] Try working at Goldman Sachs, [...] You think it’s different at any of the top consulting firms? [...] You see organizations like these thrive on large pools of some of the country’s best and brightest graduates that trade off 2-5 years of work experience under extreme pressure in exchange for skills, experiences & relationships that will last a lifetime. [Accelerated Learning] [...] Think its a cake walk working @ any of the countries top law firms? [...] Should we do an article on what it’s like to be a medical resident? How abt working in the US military? Chief of Staff for a major political figure? What abt a top athlete in the NFL or NBA or even part of the coaching staff. Think they dont have work/life balance challenges in a field theyve chosen to work in? [#Top 100 of X vs avg white- or blue-collar worker ] [what u optimize for?]

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 !!!

Twitter Acquires Android Lockscreen App Cover, Moves Deeper Into Mobile Services | TechCrunch
[ THE HOME SCREEN on your PHONE is now the SCREEN YOU have to be on. PERIOD. Twitter is trying to get there with this deal and tech&talent acquisition. >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cplq7qotDIk // http://homescreenproject.com/post/49044240848/gary-vaynerchuks-home-screen-so-many-unread-text // glancing on it many times a day just to ... ] “If that changes down the road, we’ll provide another update here,” the founders Todd Jackson, Gordon Luk and Edward Ho note in a blog post announcing the deal. You can read Josh’s review of how Cover works here. Cover is being somewhat cryptic in discussing what it will be working on at Twitter. “Twitter, like Cover, believes in the incredible potential of Android,” they write. “They share our vision that smartphones can be a lot smarter — more useful and more contextual — and together we’re going to make that happen. We’ll be building upon a lot of what makes Cover great, and we’re thrilled to create something even better at Twitter.”

Build the Steak, not the Sizzle — The Entrepreneur’s Journey — Medium
You can market your ass off, but if your product sucks, you're dead. Your steak can sizzle and look crazy appetizing, but if it doesn’t taste any good, your customers aren’t coming back. In order to build a functional business that can take on a life of its own, your product just has to be real. You need to spend all of your time and energy on creating something that actually brings value to the people you're asking for money! I know it sounds obvious, but it’s something I can’t overstate. It's imperative.

Musik-Downloads in den USA erstmals seit zehn Jahren rückläufig - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Der Musikindustrie bieten Streaming Dienste wie Rdio, Deezer oder Spotify neue Absatzmöglichkeiten, auch Internetgiganten wie Google wollen den Boom nutzen. Einzelne Musiker und Bands sehen den Streaming-Trend jedoch mit Sorge. Unter anderem beklagten "Radiohead"-Sänger Thom Yorke und der einstige "Talking Heads"-Frontmann David Byrne, dass diese Dienste mit ihren geringeren Auszahlungen Künstlern auf Dauer kein ausreichendes Einkommen bieten könnten. + http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/how-to-improve-music-streaming/ + http://www.spin.com/articles/music-documentaries-netflix-best-streaming-movies/ + Internet Radio Stations (Amazingradio, Capitalxtra).
