New Product or New Way of thinking

If you have a new product which is an improvement on an existing product you can take the market most of the times. If you have a new idea and it is revolutionary you are going to change culture, but you will probably get beaten out by someone who is second in line and sees the trend you are starting and tweaks it better becuase they are in the industry etc.

This might be heresy, but it seems like Apple is good at coming in with some product second place and then owning the market because their product blows the competition away… I’m trying to think of something they came up with first, can you think of anything?

      You got me. But Apple let the Newton kinda fizzle right? I mean it took them quite some time to regain the PDA mountain with the iphone.

    Ya, it sucked. They have done much better at improving and selling other peoples ideas.

    Completely agree with the post.
