If you want one place on the web to go to understand tech at a business level, look no further than <a href="https://stratechery.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Ben Thompson's Stratechery</a>. I often name check him on this blog but really - you should just be reading him regularly.

As a quick introduction, his latest post provides insight into 2015’s most viewed, the five ‘big ideas’ and my personal favorite – five posts about the media business.

He writes a lot >>>>

Given that most were between 1800 and 2000 words, that’s the equivalent of about 6.5 books!

“Last quarter Apple’s revenue was downright decimated by the strengthening U.S. dollar; currency fluctuations reduced Apple’s revenue by 5% – a cool $3.73 billion dollars. That, though, is more than Google made in profit last quarter ($2.83 billion). Apple lost more money to currency fluctuations than Google makes in a quarter. And yet it’s Google that is feared, and Apple that is feared for.”
