(Via Horace Dediu)
Who knew “copy the MacBook Air” wasn’t a good business strategy?
Well, OK, me, actually. I thought it was a good business strategy. Or, at least better than making the assorted poke-in-the-eye-with-a-sharp-stick designs they were using previously. Copying what Apple does works pretty well for Samsung.
Perhaps, then, the copying isn’t so much the problem as it is other things like bring-your-own PC work policies and Microsoft’s troubles and the rise of tablets/iPads and Tim Cook joining the Illuminati and whoops I’ve said too much.
