It is an obvious fact that the music industry has changed, we all can see that. But how exactly and to what depth?

Do you remember the last time you downloaded an MP3 file of a song from a pirated website, transferred it to your pen drive to jam with your buddies in the car, and felt great because you kept up with the latest releases? Also, do you remember how you prayed hopefully that it plays the latest song you added first instead of shuffling it?

I believe I speak for all when I say music streaming has changed for the better. To what extent has it exactly changed? How did the entire industry go through an overhaul starting from how artists make music & release them till how & when we listen to the releases? …

It’s been a while since I have read an autobiography/memoir that was as exciting as this one. Through the entire story, Robert Iger stays true to his values by demanding honesty, integrity, and decency from everyone as a leader which has made him one of the most successful CEOs of the 21st century. He takes you through his exhilarating 45-year journey at ABC Entertainment/Disney while furnishing every chapter with lessons on leadership.

You would have come across quotes like “Surround yourself with people who push you to be better” or “You are only as good as the people around you” and this book says nothing different. Because it’s true. Robert Iger attributes a good chunk of his success to the people he worked with. From his first manager when he joined ABC Entertainment as a supervisor as a young boy at the age of 23 till Steve Jobs who helped him acquire Marvel Entertainment, Robert stresses the importance of having inspiring people around you. Include people in your circle who understand, motivate, encourage, embolden, acknowledge you and also sometimes criticize the things that you do. He iterates the lessons he learned from his former colleagues throughout the book. …

First off, there are only people in certain corners of the world who understand cryptocurrency and how it works. Given that Facebook is making one is like inviting a murderer to your house again because he missed his mark the first time.

The Libra cryptocurrency introduced by Facebook in July has made everyone in the tech world yak about it. Introduced — not a prototype, not a demo service, not a special launch version — just introduced and already everyone has got scruples about it.

A few years ago, back when I was halfway through my college, I started to dig into the lives of successful people like Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Michael Dell, and a few others through documentaries and online articles explaining about their personal life, how they became & remain successful. By now, for sure you must have also read those kinds of articles and most of them attribute their success to their decision-making skills, negotiation skills, the way they present themselves and others. But one thing that always caught my attention was their attitude towards money. …

Flipkart and Amazon, both have had amazing neck and neck run in India since the time they were launched. There have been amazing sales records, crazy discounts, fury business tactics and like they call it in India “dhamaka” offers. But the recent few months or I can say even almost a year now has been dry in the e-commerce segment with only Flipkart and Amazon racing toe-to-toe pushing each other’s revenue up and down every few months. With the small players like Myntra and Jabong being bought by Flipkart and Snapdeal constantly stuck in a downward spiral, it can be safely concluded that the top two spots have been conquered by Flipkart and Amazon. There isn’t any other competitor insight who is capable of knocking these two off the top. There are of course companies that take up the 3rd place but the distance between the silver and bronze medal is miles apart. …

Oh my, oh my, since when did renewing your annual subscription become just as important as filing your income tax return?

Now it’s all a battle between a handful of colossal companies who have a huge arsenal full of resources aiming to conquer a mammoth territory. AT&T’s WarnerMedia, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney, NBC Universal, Apple are all a part of this. …
