Sleight Of Hand With Business Models
from the what's-really-going-on? dept
A good article that points out the big hole in the “Trojan Horse” business model arguments that technology companies and investors still like to make. These are when people start hyping up a company for something other than its main business. For instance, the idea that Amazon.com isn’t a retailer – but a technology company (oooh, ahhhh!). The problem is that in order for these “trojan horse” business models to actually work, they have to be good at the first part that gets to the trojan horse meaning that Amazon has to actually be a good retailer first. In Amazon’s case they might get away with it, but other companies, like Peapod being a customer data company and not an onlince grocer – didn’t work out so well.

Mike, learn to spell!!!
It’s sleight not slight. And you have a scattering of theirs when they should be there. Being on the web is not an excuse for illiteracy!
Re: Mike, learn to spell!!!
Yeah, yeah. We’ve already talked about this. If I misspell something, tell me, and I go fix it (as I’m doing now). You don’t have to insult me. Everyone makes mistakes. I try my best, but sometimes I’m going to screw up. Misspelling a word or two here or there hardly makes me illiterate.
