From a friend working at Marriott over the summer, I think esp with the finalization of their merger with SPG, the company is focusing A LOT of energy on keep its place at the top for travelers. I think this story definitely has a long way to play out ESP. given PCs points on regulation. I think AirBnB is going to face a lot of pushback (similar to Uber) in the way its spread in major cities across the world, especially in those that are facing affordable housing shortages.

I actually just received a ‘point and shoot’ digital camera for Christmas and am interested if my purchase, as well as a number of friends, is anecdotal or a trend in a swing back to more high quality hardware? I think with the stagnation of how smartphone cameras are improving (aside from innovations in how they use ML to improve quality) that consumers (or at least a small subset) may show demand for higher quality images — maybe there’s a niche for cameras that complement smartphones?
