Re: The Monopolist - http://www.asymco.com/2015...
"The part I'm not completely sure about is assuming the competition relationship being reflexive. The 2 examples I'm thinking about: 1) MP3 players and iPod; 2) cloud services. Takes completely separate, in the sense of removing all the ecosystem, I can probably see how for these cases competition is reflexive. On the other hand, at least in Apple's case (MS, Google, Amazon too), it's rarely the case that one can separate complete a product from the ecosystem. And in that case I'd say that competition is not reflexive anymore. This is actually a similar conclusion of your article, but yours discusses it in terms of transitivity, while my comment is questioning the reflexive nature." - Alex Popescu

"While the rest of the article stands, the mid-part on transitiveness of competition and the example used are incorrect. The example says that if HTC competes with Apple and Dropbox competes with Apple. Basically that translates to A competed with B, and C competes with B. There's no transitivity applied. What I think you are referring to, at least in math terms, is reflexivity: if A competes with B then B competes with A." - Alex Popescu
