That is one reason why I believe why apple is "better" than Microsoft, also because they have a much better way of marketing things. Think about how much money you get from games. Microsoft takes a little bit of the money from each game sale yet cannot out profit apple because their marketing isn't very good. Originally Apple only has 4 types of products on the market (iPod, iPhone, iPad, apple tv, iwatch and the mac) just like Microsoft (PC, Xbox, Kinect, and phone) yet apple does better because of the reasons listed above. Microsoft though, since it has a big chunk of market share as far as operating systems is concerned, is for hackers to mess with since 70% of all hacking tools is for windows only.
However, his proudest accomplishment is being just another member of the team. As the name of the company evolved from ‘Grey & Associates’ to ‘Grey Communications’ and finally to ‘Communication Services’, clients relied less and less on Grey and more on the capable talents of company employees. Thus, Grey became “just part of the team”, which suits him just fine. According to Grey, self-confidence is the most important quality of a successful entrepreneur. Even though there are hundreds of opportunities to fail,
Assignment for Donna Dubinsky Donna Dubinsky worked as the manager of distribution and sales administration in Apple. She was doing a good job until Steve Jobs, apple’s chairman proposed to change the existing distribution system to “just-in time” method. She insisted that the existing distribution system was the most suitable for Apple as an off-the –shelf business, it was needed to have inventory. However, Steve Jobs believed that the “just-in-time” distribution would decrease the cost through eliminating the need for warehouses, carrying costs, and extensive inventory. Dubinsky had expert power which was obvious, because she was in charge of the distribution area and had a lot of experiences.
3. Threat of Rivalry Personal Computers and the music/audio market are Apple’s two main areas of competition. Their leading competitors are Dell, HP, and Microsoft. Personal computers are quite popular today and with so many choices, the sales price of the computers need to be lowered to a competitive price which can, again, lead to a loss in profit. However Apple has, because of their easy to use and widely available, fair priced iPod(s), cornered the music market.
If it were not for the protection of patents, big companies, with their robust capacity, would surpass the small business entrepreneurs in speed and cost of production and thereafter suppress them completely. However, the excludability that patents impose on non owners of the inventions does not see capacity. This helps small business entrepreneurs to practice their own inventions while big companies remain hands-tied. ii) Revenue from licenses, sale or infringement. Licensing ones technology to others is another good way of making money.
The song also tells you that you can’t go a whole life without making mistakes and if you those not to stand up after you has failed, it’s will be your biggest mistake of them all. After I heard the song I was thinking about one of my favorite quotes By Sam Wells - "The most powerful person in the world is the one who isn't paralyzed by the fear of their own failure" That the way to success! - By stand up every time world is against you, like when Steve Jobs was fired from Apple and after a few years he comes back with new ideas and become director of Apple, after short time he makes new products and makes Apple’s iPhone to the best selling telephone, all of his products was a great success and all the things he has done would never have come this far if I didn’t learn from he’s fail. The conclusion of this song is that the song is basically you have all these options in your life, a variety of things you could do. But with every action, ever decision you will learn something from whatever the corresponding action is.
Irene Joseph Professor Johnson ENGL 1301-219 January 31, 2012 Why Doesn’t GM Sell Crack? A Rhetorical Analysis of Moore’s “Why Doesn’t GM Sell Crack?” This text is an essay by Michael Moore entitled “Why Doesn’t GM Sell Crack?” It is taken from his political book Downsize This! published in 1996. This essay bought up a lot of radical thinking but at the same time, it helped the author get his point across. Moore persuades his audiences by saying as a society; we tend to forget what the outcome is when big corporations decide to fire workers because the CEO wants more for their salary.
On the other side there are descendants which are raised in wealth and don’t have an attitude or the same parental feeling toward the company as the founders had. I think that Eva and Dieter are willing to work, grow the company and earn a lot of money, but in this situation they look like spoiled children having the coolest toy in kindergarten. Today’s business world is cruel; there are taxes, rules, norms, regulations and other conditions that have to be followed. It makes production more expensive so I understand that leaving the Germany was logic idea. In the end it is probably much easier for Germans to find another job since it is one of the most powerful countries in EU.
This film also displays how greed is good in the way of competition. When Gates stole Job’s ideas and created a competing company, it meant it would keep prices of personal computers at a reasonable price. Going back to Gordon Gekko’s speech in the movie Wall Street, he says, “greed in all forms- greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge- has marked the upward surge of mankind.” This quote epitomizes the thought of self-interest. When people go to school, go to work, and do productive things, they do it for their own benefit and personal gain. That’s greed.
A great leader with confidence will lead his team passionately and positively even if the odds are stacked against them. It is confidence that will break down the barriers of self-doubt and instill a “go get’em attitude”. For example, many head coaches in the National Football League would not be in the place they are if they weren’t embedded with confidence. The head coaches must be able to lead their team through every tribulation that the team faces and must do so with confidence. If the team is down in the standings, it is the head coaches’ duty to make sure that the team is still confident that they can make a comeback but the coach must be confident as well.
