Cory Doctorow writes that Sony’s electronics division is being pummelled by its entertainment holdings. (Wired did a good article on this last year.) What strikes me from Doctorow’s piece is how closely Sony Electronics is beginning to resemble the companies that Christensen discusses in Innovator’s Dilemma. From Doctorow:
Sony, who invented the walkman and made billions off of it, has now become an irrelevant player in the personal stereo market, with a market share that’s barely a blip on the chart.
If I were still in school, this might make an interesting case study.
