5 Steps to Build a Disruption Proof Business Model

Guest post from Robbie Kellman Baxter: In the past few years, we have seen what we thought of as “disruption proof” businesses get disrupted by new and unexpected competitors.   Banks, by Paypal, Venmo, and ApplePay.   Taxis by Uber & Lyft. Hotels by AirBnB. More recently in the wake of the novel coronavirus, we have seen a second wave of disruption coming from outside forces, rather than competition. Many organizations have been blindsided by the implications of social distancin...

Tom Hanks said the 'cruel whipmasters at Apple' made him do an interview in front of a blank wall so people couldn't scrutinize things in his home (AAPL)

Actor Tom Hanks discussed his new war movie "Greyhound" that will debut on Apple TV Plus in a recent interview with The Guardian. According to Hanks, Apple instructed him to use a blank wall as his background in the interview with the outlet's reporter, perhaps to prevent anything in his home — such as books on a shelf — from being scrutinized. Hanks also expressed "heartbreak" that his movie, which he poured years of work into, won't be experienced on the big screen. The movie was supposed to...

The app (whose name is short for “something more”) launched last fall and has supposedly attracted nearly 50,000 users. The goal is to move beyond the superficiality of most dating apps, w...

Disney Plus can't compete with Netflix when it comes to original content, but its affordable price and iconic franchises make it a great value for families

  Disney Plus launched in November 2019 and has amassed more than 50 million subscribers. A monthly subscription costs $6.99 a month, while an annual plan costs $69.99 a year. The service does a tremendous job anthologizing classic Disney movies and TV shows from decades ago that haven't been released in years and won't be available anywhere else. However, Disney's streaming service is family-focused, meaning none of the movies on Disney Plus are rated R. As a result, people without kids may ...
