Depending on how old your car is, if you’ve lifted the hood recently, you’ll notice that the engine and the supporting parts are not at all like the ones you grew up with (or that you saw in movies for our younger audience).

The new business reality: a feature as a business model

T

It’s almost comical to say there is a new business reality at play. This is because there are so many forces at work lately, that it seems as though new realities are created and killed almost every quarter. Opportunistic turbulence is probably the best term for it. I’d like to call one out for review Features can be business models. I’ve listed some examples below: Dropbox...
