This amazing talk from NYU Stern professor Scott Galloway covers how Amazon, Facebook, Apple and Google are dominating the world. It particularly focuses on the consequences for the users, and is full of amazing soundbites as well as predictions on how each of the 4 companies could become the first $1 trillion company in history.
Last week, I spoke to an audience of up-and-coming leaders at a global publisher about the Curve and its consequences for their business. One throwaway line I made was this:
“Apple cares about selling hardware, not software. It pushed the price of apps towards zero to shift units of iPhones and iPads. If Amazon cared more about selling Kindles than being a retailer, ebooks would already be free.”
