Hey Olympus, are you paying attention?

You may have noticed that Steve Jobs announced the iPad 2 today about 11 months after the first one came out. Apple sold 3 million ipads in the first 80 days.

The point being that Apple is releasing new innovative products ahead of the competition and often enough that their loyal fan base is staying with them. Apple users may be wondering what Apple is going to come out with next but at least they don't have a long wait to find out.

Some food for thought Olympus. Keep your customers informed and don't take forever to come out with the next product - even if they just have a facelift. You won’t hold on to the EVIL camera market lead that way and more 4/3rds users are contemplating changing brands then there are new customers coming to it because of sluggishness.

rant over
'When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at
his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it.
Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two,
and I know it was not that blow that did it,
but all that had gone before.'
-- Jacob Riis (1849 - 1914)

Stay Well,
