Quando la previsione della popolarità e i tassi di adozione di un nuovo prodotto o innovazione, secondo la Harvard Business Review, ci sono differenze significative tra le nuove tecnologie e gli aggiornamenti o sostituzioni di tecnologie esistenti. Infatti, mentre la marca-nuove innovazioni di solito un costante aumento adopters per un bel po ‘ di tempo, la sostituzione innovazioni che invece vedono una rapida diffusione in un primo momento, seguito da un brusco rallentamento in adozione.

Amazon Warns Customers: Those Supplements Might Be Fake

On the second evening of Prime Day, Amazon’s annual sales bonanza, Anne Marie Bressler received an email from Amazon that had nothing to do with the latest deals.

It does indeed show off a square triple-camera housing in the upper left of the back – a serious departure for the single-rear-lens Google Pixel line – and much thinner side bezels, as well as an apparent ditching of the notch by returning to a simple blacked-out top bezel.

The differences? The previous Google Pixel 4 XL leak – our first potential look at the phone – showed off dual front-facing cameras [...]  read more
