Attacks Axis

By: John Honovich, Published on Jun 24, 2009

Twitter usage continues to grow and is now being used for vendors to attack others. The editor of Mobotix Installer magazine criticized Axis for "producing me-too products". As proof, he cited shrinking Q1 revenue in Asia Pacific region.

I am not sure how he draws this conclusion from that one data point. Moreover, of all the concerns reasonable industry people cite about Axis, me-too products are not one of them (excessive cost, channel unfriendliness and growth of competitors are the big challenges most often stated).

Nonetheless, the direct communication that the Internet provides will certainly change how manufacturers interact. It will be interesting to see how adversarial or productive this becomes.
