    I’m publishing this Weblog to deepen perspectives on topics that light me up. These relate to my business communication, disruptive technologies and photography. 

    My work is changing so fast that I can barely grasp it all, much less fully comprehend the implications. Perhaps keeping this blog will help.

    In Spite of 2nd Place in Market Share, Apple Has Built A Monopoly in Value Creation

     Horace Dedui:

    To earn profit is hard, to do so in an outsized way is very hard and to do so with consistency shows a defensibility of market access that is rarest of all. The only cases where this typical is in a monopoly or protected market situation (aka cronyism.) Apple’s lack of market monopoly coupled with a (near-) monopoly in profits can only be explained by disproportionate value creation.

    The mystery then is how is it possible to build a monopoly in value creation.
