Yeah, yeah, I've read the NYT 'innovator vs distributor' article. It's all wrong. Not much to look at here, folks - innovation and imitation are the two fundamental strategies of any kind of competition (economic, biological, etc).

This whole article is a restatement of a truism...the only thing that's going to happen here is the simple competitive dynamic of Schumpeterian rents flowing to HP, and the rest of the pie - quasi-Ricardian rents - flowing to Dell. I suggest you ignore stuff like this and go read Ron Burt, or even Duncan Watts for that matter.
