Thank you Sidharth 🙂
Hmm…well, honestly, I do not think Samsung can achieve the same level of dominance in the smartphone business. I may be wrong with this, but my thoughts are, for memory semiconductors, the specs that client companies are looking for are relatively similar and limited. On the other hand, consumers have various taste, and smartphone being a consumer product, I’m not sure if it possible to have the same dominance over a broad range of market segment.

Regarding acquisition strategy, Samsung has always been extremely conservative and preferred to develop things in-house (although there are a few cases, but they are rare). However, the company is going through a major change, transiting from 2nd generation to the 3rd generation (current chairman in a coma, and his son, the vice chairman will most likely succeed him). The 3rd generation is relatively more westernized, and thus we may see more acquisition than before. It will be interesting to see whether the company philosophy will change, and if it does how it will change.

Wow! this is incredible. I had no idea the price can be decreased in such level. I am another person who is shocked by it!
From curiosity, I understand many people are working on humanoid robots. However, I wonder. It seems non-humanoid robots may have more practicality, yet we always crave to create human form robots. Wonder what’s your thoughts on this 🙂

Great article! Love it Cam! 🙂
I am curious. How is the market segmented? And if it is segmented, who are the major competitors?
I attended an event called Spartan Race, which seems to have similar elements. Wondering if the Spartan Race could be one of the competitors.
Also as the event gains more popularity across the globe, how do you think the event will evolve?

On December 14, 2015, Go Choi commented on Flipkart: Every Wish Will Be Fulfilled :

Very impressive, not just for its performance, but the way how company built up its relationship with customers.
My impression is, Flipkart has a better understanding of the local market against its international competitors such as Amazon.
However, what I’m more curious is, there must have been other competitors that were trying out similar services at the time. How did they fend off these competitors. To be more specific, the service could be copied by the competitors (cash based service etc.), especially by the local competitors. Was it the scale of ammunition (i.e. funding/cash) they had or was it other elements that lead Flipkart to be better than its local competitors?
