Another strength that has kept Amazon.com in a successful state is the Global Brand.
Apple’s headquarters is in Cupertino, California, CEO and co-founder is Steve Jobs and the company boasts 284 retail locations spanning 10 different countries. 1.2: Customer Interaction Channels Steve Jobs understood one major conundrums of technology, if you create products that are easy to use, the variety of things that people want to use technology for often creates complexity. Consumers at all levels may need some hand holding from time to time. Most people have a working understanding of the fact that Apple lost the PC wars to Microsoft, and only nominally understand that when Apple created the iPod and the iPhone, the company started to go in a new but great direction. And anyone who’s gone into an Apple store knows full well that Apple’s customer service and stores represent the gold standard for selling and supporting tech gadgets.
Apple operates in an industry where the latest and greatest is old news by mid next month. There are constant changes which lead to huge dollars being spent to stay ahead of the competition. Apple has been successful as of late developing and introducing products that are wanted in the market place.

In my opinion, the 10,000 rule is the most convincing reason for success. Very successful people, like The Beatles, Bill Gates, and Bill Joy, all worked very hard at what they do to become successful. All of these successful people were born at the right place at the right time and took advantage of that and worked hard to learn more, and practice more to become as successful as they were/are. Gladwell did studies on many people, and found that whoever worked or practiced for 10,000 or more hours were the successful ones, and the people who didn’t weren’t successful. It is said that 10,000 hours is the amount of time your brain needs to assimilate everything it needs to become an expert in your field.
