Retroactively Bundled
Sam Gerstenzang

Nice read. You always write very thoughtful pieces.

Your first bullet at the end proves case in point why it’s strategic — not just convenient — for umbrella companies to buy new brands and allow those brands to operate individually.

The second bullet is why I’m keeping a keen eye on Slack, Messenger, Wechat, etc. — they’re all new launch contexts that stand chances at derailing incumbent OSs.

Overall, a good cautionary reminder for anyone trying to stake their competitive advantage.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
