Tim Berry: iPhone as Classic Drama – Business on The Huffington Post
Tim Berry, founder and President of the company I work for, has an excellent post up on the Huffington Post about the launch of the iPhone and drama surrounding it. Tim’s perspective on the iPhone launch is especially interesting because of his history with Apple in the 80s and his involvement in their business planning.
I’m eagerly awaiting the iPhone introduction, but not just because I want one. I’m looking forward to the drama of Jobs, Apple, and cool gadgets vs. the stock market and financial analysis. I’m hoping that Apple and Steve Jobs can establish coolness as a wild-card measure of long-term health in a stock market world ruled by short-term metrics like gross margins and last quarter’s earnings. It’s a classic drama, complete with a hero, a fatal flaw, and, I hope, final redemption.
