    Interesting idea. Do you think an ecosystem model is applicable in the health service market? I'm in the US but would like to chat with you regarding this. If you would email me I would like to arrange an opportunity to speak. We have been exploring a similar idea with regard to services we provide to hospitals and doctor groups.


    I think the real key to Apple's success has been the focus on marketing a premium product. It's largely due to public perception which they have managed to shape over the years. Yes, it all works well together, but so do other company offerings. Apple manages somehow to position their products differently. It's a marketing model, not a business model.


    Instead of worrying about building an ecosystem, you should worry about GETTING A LIFE.
    Do you think writing all this drivel makes you look smart? I think not!


    I think you can see this occurring in today's markets beyond just Apple - everyone is trying to create the ecosystem approach it seems. The problem is that as with traditional products and services, you can't just copy another company's ecosystem. For example, Google is trying to replicate what Apple does. They have their own marketplace, their own music hub, etc. etc. I agree with you, Search, is their core lynchpin in their offerings, but their ecosystem too closely mirrors what Apple is doing. That is why the Google TV is now experiencing lukewarm market acceptance. The ecosystem is key moving forward in future organizations, but keeping the ecosystem differentiated is what will give companies strategic advantage.

    I watched a movie "The Silicon Valley", and there the answer for question "why Apple is so successful" have been given. They produce what people need, the workers are the best specialists in their field, they try to realize new projects. Do things that they like themselves, not just to sell them. Oh, my comment is so chaotic, but hope the main idea is clear. Thank you.
