Strategy Decay pt 378

Verizon cripples dream phone to work only with it's own bluetooth (and other sundry) features + packages. A nice example of when tying fails - when there are cheap (free) substitutes available, weak prop rights, and most importantly, your entire business model is a holdover from 1999 which doesn't recognize why markets for complements are cooler than monopolies over complements.
