The Rumoured Apple Search And Frontal Attack On Google
Apple is rumoured to be going after the jewel of Google by launching a search engine. If Apple follows through, preferring to lose about 20% of its annual profit which Google pays it, it would be a new dawn in frenemy confrontation in big tech. But Apple may not have an option with the U.S. government suing Google for paying companies like Apple for positioning Google search in browsers (like Apple’s Safari) and other gateways. Largely, Apple does not see that payment to survive the court case, and if it does not have an alternative, it may miss that money even…

Blue Apron Shows Why You Must Focus On Market-Fit, Not Just Pandemic-Fit
Is your business market-fit or just pandemic fit? Blue Apron, a meal-delivery company, is turning out to be a more pandemic-fit company than one which can thrive during normal times. The stock lost 25% of its value on trading today. Yet the main issue may be the sale sign it took off, according to Barron’s, “Blue Apron Holdings stock has lost more than a quarter of their value on Thursday after the meal-kit provider announced the end of a strategic review launched earlier this year, and that it is not pursuing a sale or other strategic transaction.” Blue Apron, boosted…

Netflix’s Power of Fandom – When Customers Become Fans
Improve your service delivery to make your consumers become customers. The greatest companies go beyond having customers – they engineer FANS out of customers. When customers are fans, great moments arise and glory awaits. It is about going beyond Needs and Expectations to Perceptions  of customers, creating Fans out of customers. On that, I report the news that Netflix is raising prices of its products. Yes, this is a company which is under frontal and flank attacks from Disney+, Amazon Prime, and other video on-demand players, who to a large extent, are more affordable.

The Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala’s Response
It is one of those unfortunate things in the world: those who hired a cosmetic diva and a real estate flipper as trade advisers and negotiators are asking a Harvard graduate and MIT PhD to prove that she is qualified for a job. Reading Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala’s response to the United States on the World Trade Organization blockage is painful. But that is the world we live: you must be twice good to be half-celebrated. What can I say that her main competitor has not come out to endorse her. I mean how would the second in class, Ms  Yoo Myung-hee,…

The Evolution of the “United States” Trade Organization (UTO)
There is no need to remind me that the U.S. government does NOT support an American citizen as the boss of the World Trade Organization, WTO; Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is an American through naturalization. Yes, the US Government is vetoing the ascension of Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala over the person she defeated, another amazing woman – Yoo Myung-hee of Korea. But note this: it would not matter. The internet has already broken into two – the U.S. and Chinese internets. Trade is going to be broken into two – the US and emerging world versions. U.S. concern is clear – we…

After “#Sorosoke” (speak louder), there is “#Ise Bere” (work begins), Bola Awosika Oyeleye tells Nigerian Youths

A charge has gone to the youths in Nigeria not to be discouraged by the recent events that characterized the peaceful but hijacked protests to end police brutality in the country.
