Goodbye, Ownership. Hello, Usership.
Like many others, I watched Apple’s annual iPhone announcement last week with great expectations. I was hoping, expecting, that the “one more thing” would be the all-inclusive Apple-as-a-Service that I wrote about before.
Last week, I made an appearance on The Claman Countdown and spoke about the streaming wars, the future of publishing, and the importance of putting the right bundle, the right offer, in front of the right subscriber, at the right time.
Amazon’s sure been busy. A couple of weeks ago, we wrote about Amazon’s acquisition of One Medical, possibly turning Primary care into “Prime-ary” care. Hot on the heels of that, Amazon announced they are acquiring iRobot for $1.2 billion dollars.
This week, I spoke with Renee Niemi, a former CPO, but who now runs a consulting service called Products That Count with her partners at Mighty Capital.
