DLD15 - What Matters Most in Startup Success (Bill Gross) - YouTube
timing, execution, idea. ... funding is no differentiator as business model. if you have customer demand for your idea (product/market fit) then you can use one business model of the shelve. good timing can crossover with product/market fit - ie come up with something people all the sudden need (ie extra income renting out bed, driving on the weekend and evenings). // timing - is the market really ready (reach/penetration)?! ie Oculus Rift (VR) is not yet mass market compatible. rise of casual gamer, ... mainstream media wrote about it when the market sort of peaked (3-5 break out hits hit mainstream usage. ie your mom). // longer version - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZS-NCSJ9Zo

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 !!!
