Why Customer Experience is the New Brand

This is a guest post from Avery Steinhauer on behalf of Ayima. In 1998, home video and rental company Netflix only had 30 employees and 925 titles in their inventory. However, as the video rental market started to decline in the 2000s, the company saw the potential in personalisation and the way in which it was changing the digital market.

Apple's stubborn refusal to make a cheap iPhone resulted in its biggest sales decline in 3 years

Apple saw its biggest iPhone sales decline in almost three years over the holiday quarter, according to new Gartner data. That ties in with an overall pattern of declining smartphones sales globally. But Chinese brands bucked the trend, with Huawei and Oppo boosting phone sales thanks to their broad appeal in emerging markets like China and India. Part of the reason Apple is losing market share is because it doesn't offer a cheap iPhone and relies on existing owners upgrading their phones. Ap...

YouTuber Matt Watson described a "wormhole" in which YouTube's algorithm was recommending videos of young girls.

Amazon will survive the HQ2 fiasco. Its bigger problem is winning over reluctant advertisers

Hello! First, if you're a Prime subscriber, we'd love to hear what you think. Please take our quick survey here. What a week it’s been for Amazon. The company accustomed to being slobbered over by local municipalities got a cold welcome when it tried to expand to New York City, and ended up pulling out. It was another sign that the public's goodwill toward big tech is fading.   Amazon's business will be just fine without New York City. But more crucial to its business, and less publicly, it’s t...

That was up one percentage point from the 2017 study, but then the figures get a little more ambivalent. At 36 percent, the amount of wo...
