The Analyst’s Guide to Apple

The Analyst’s Guide to Apple Category Entry | Asymco … Nice.

I believe the problem of transportation and its proxy, the automobile, provide all the requisite demand for Apple’s attention. Technical questions abound and they may still prove unsurmountable before a launch happens, but there are no doubts in my mind that this is a problem Apple would see fit to address.
Non-consumption of unmet and unarticulated jobs to be done can and should be addressed with systems solutions and new experiences.
The poetry is pretty clear on the matter.

... Horace Dediu

This is it
This is what matters
The experience of a product
How it will make someone feel
Will it make life better?
Does it deserve to exist?

We spend a lot of time on a few great things
Until every idea we touch
Enhances each life it touches

You may rarely look at it
But you will always feel it
This is our signature
And it means everything

The Next Big Thing Might Be Missed If We Aren’t Careful …

imagesSangeet continues the drum beat of ‘Platformed’. I reference and ‘borrow’ his thinking a lot – but don’t always post here. This time I make an exception, because it clearly explains what I have been trying to get people to understand for the last two years. Bottom line, he examines the roadmap to success for Social companies in the consumer space. In passing flagging why Friendster and MySpace stalled. Then moving into the world that I remain get fixated on .. The Social Enterprise. (no – that isn’t allowing people access to Facebook in  the workplace).

Sangeet calls out the 5 stages of Social Adoption, which for simplicity I repeat here – but you can also get the full story – with context here.

Steven Wilson

Steven WilsonI wrote the core of this post to someone today and decided I needed to post here ‘for posterity’. The ‘soundtrack of my life’ is heavily centered on what I call ‘English Progressive’. It is more focussed than the more extensive ‘Progressive’ – and in my mind at least keeps it seperate and away from the confusion of Metal, Symphonic Rock and other genres that impinge.

Pink Floyd, Genesis (up to Steve Hackett leaving) and Yes are the most obvious names that can be categorized thus. But add to that names like Caravan, Camel, ELP, Soft Machine, Jethro Tull, Gentle Giant … you begin to get the picture. Pink Floyd – for most of my life was the one single band I would name when asked “So .. who is your favorite band?”. But more recently – they have been making way for a new name. Steven Wilson.

According to Amazon it was March 15th 2003 when I purchased In Abstentia – at the time the newest album from a band called Porcupine Tree. Later that year I saw them play live here in San Francisco. Porcupine Tree was the brain child of Steven Wilson.

The Real Me

David CarrNot news. If you know of David Carr – you know he died last week.

If you didn’t know of David Carr – you don’t really care.

Many people are writing about him – this one particularly caught my eye – maybe it is the headline ?

“Keep typing until it turns into writing”

Sufi Mystics

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sufi mystics say the secret of the Qur’an lies
in the verse Al-Fatiha,
And the secret of Al-Fatiha lies in
Bismillahirrahmanirrahim
And the quintessence of Bismillah is the letter ba,
And there is a dot below that letter ….
The dot underneath the B embodies the entire universe….

Excerpt From: Shafak, Elif. “The Forty Rules of Love.” PENGUIN group, 2014-07-15.
