Technology & Business: Adapt or Die

Dan Kimerling from TechCrunch has a very interesting story earlier today. He was ranting about Microsoft and their competitors (Google & Apple) that gave Microsoft a lot of headaches in the last few years.

Let me just quote a few lines from his post:
For Microsoft to pick up the proverbial ball and start running with it, it will need to listen to what the consumer wants, and design products that fit those needs, rather than assuming that the consumer will buy whatever it is that Microsoft hands them, just because it is a Microsoft product. And, the young consumers of today, the big spenders of tomorrow want products that are focused on mobility, ease of use, speed, and simplicity.

Let’s not talk about Microsoft. They have their own problems, so let’s look at ours. What is happening to Microsoft today has happened to many other smaller businesses and rest assured that it will happen to you one day even though you are only running a small online store today.

Businesses, no matter how big or small they maybe must learn to adapt to technological changes and the demands of the hungry consumers. If businesses failed to adapt, they would die sooner or later. :-)
