Weekend read: It’s a services world

Weekend Read

So convinced was he of customers’ vitriol for subscription services, the late Steve Jobs famously told Rolling Stone “I think you could make available the Second Coming in a subscription model and it might not be successful”.

My pick for this weekend’s read is this article by Manu Rekhi on PandoDaily, where he discusses the ceaseless rise of the subscription service, and explains how $1.99/month can net a company millions.
