The Death of the Crackberry
The BlackBerry is dead.
Not officially, but it’s dead. This article from the New Yorker explains why.
Surprise! The cause of BlackBerry’s demise is its manufacturer’s inability to adapt to the changing economy! Where have we heard this before? Here’s another dinosaur industry thinking that its business model will survive in the Innovation Economy. Wrong!
This has almost become a meme of this blog: adapt or die. Perhaps this is the meme of the Innovation Economy. Adapt. Or die.
Remember Axiom #1: In the New Economy, you must embrace technology or be left behind to die.
