Project #23633 - Assingment Needed ASAP

 

 

 

As recently as five years ago, Blockbuster was the largest outlet for videos. They had displaced all, or most, of the mom and pop and local providers and were sitting fat and happy. Netflix was started as a mail order alternative by renting movies one at a time and did not create a subscription service until 1999 and Blockbuster responded with a monthly service of their own. For the next 7-8 years Blockbuster was in the leader position because of immediacy. In 2007 Netflix offered online availability first and then in 2008 began partnering with cable network providers to allow subscribers instant access to their library through options on the cable service providers’ menus. Blockbuster is now dead in the water.

 

Netflix is not the only company who has achieved market dominance through similar processes. Apple almost went bankrupt in the late 1990's and early 2000's after Steve Jobs had been removed from the organization. Apple Computer now has more cash reservers than the US government, see http://www.rawstory.com/rawreplay/2011/07/apple-inc-has-more-cash-on-hand-than-the-government/. Apple rose from the ashes on the success of the iPod and the following products, iPhone and iPad etc.
