People Buy Products, Not Any Technology

Shipping a great new product, not necessarily based on a new technology is adequate for the growth of business.

Steve Jobs made NeXT once he was forced to leave Apple behind. WorldWideWeb was invented on a NeXT computer. Still the business was not that good for NeXT.

On the other hand Tim Berners-Lee refrained from releasing world-wide-web under GNU-GPL only on the basis that corporates might not get involved due to the leftist reputation of GNU and Richard Stallman. Thereafter came Linux, GNU’s much awaited kernel code from Finland. That struggled for desktop space although got server side business. Then came Andy Rubin. He simply made android by using Linux as its kernel and a great new product is born to get purchased by Google. That made its own space acquiring the highest growth rate ever seen in business.

Apple got in trouble and Amelio started looking for a new operating system. Fortunately Apple bought NeXT shelling out much larger amount for less valued stocks but for what? Steve Jobs was hired again and what he did? He stopped Apple, looking for a new operating system. Instead he prepared Apple to ship the great new product iPod. iPod by Apple was greater than Walkman by Sony. Considering that the concept was not new as music listening on the go has already been a popular behaviour. iPod simply added great value to that popularity and became successful within no time establishing a great new user experience. Business became good around that.

People do not buy a technology. People buy a product. Shipping a great new product, not necessarily based on a new technology is adequate for the growth of business.

The User Experience Must Never Face Any Inconsistency

What Steve Jobs craved for was an all out indulgence in designing the perfect user experience above all as integrated whole without any inconsistency in the product.

Google Chairman Eric Schmidt appreciated Apple in his book ‘The New Digital Age’ that Apple makes only one phone and whenever any prpblem occurs with it, their engineers just do not go home till it is finally resolved. This seems not to be so now.

A few days back through more than half a dozen incidents reported from Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Greece and Canada also about the swelling of battery in iPhone 8 Plus up to the extent of opening of the phonecase, it is now evident that even the legacy of Steve Jobs is finally buried at Apple.

Apple did that after its initial success also only to officially cry for a return of Steve Jobs later on, who was deliberately thrown out prior to that. In fact Steve Jobs was hardest to please and so is his legacy as well.

What Steve Jobs craved for was an all out indulgence in designing the perfect user experience above all as integrated whole without any inconsistency in the product. That is a lesson of eternal value in any business.

At SANGKRIT.net all the people’s personal outlets must grasp the core thing out of this while independently serving the people. Worry free packages sold by the them must always remain worry-free to the end user. The user experience must not ever face any inconsistency.

Last year similarily Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 troubled its users with the burning of battery while charging and this year Apple’s iPhone 8 Plus battery is swelling out of the case. It is indeed foolish to buy such low configuration devices at so high costs because of the brand name when those are configured that badly considering the end user a fool.
