Market Insights from the Market Strategy Team (Kev)


Read-only update this week, as Kev is at a work week. Not a lot beyond announcements to kick off the fall holiday buying season, with all kinds of new gear coming. Still some interesting bits in the Notes section, though. I'll have better stuff next week given all the press events in the next few days.

Worth a Read

  • A piece on how LG bungled their WebOS acquisition. It's an opinion piece, but it highlights culture clash from a corporate and regional perspective, and how (unresolved) conflicting viewpoints can damage people and product.
