always a problem..
> "not always an easy thing for a huge oil tanker like us to maintain our strengths, and at the same time, to start new things from scratch.."

It's still amazing to see how many startups are able to become "huge oil tankers" nowadays. I'm wondering if this situation can last and if the established tech companies will begin an era of multi-decade rule? Microsoft and Apple seem to be still healthy and building up resources to last for the next 100 years, but can IBM and GE still stick around? Can Facebook avoid becoming like Yahoo?

Whoa. 8GB of RAM for a smartphone?!? I think a lot of laptops have less than that. Some not so old MacBooks have that much soldiered in permanently?

Re: Digital world
> "Software development is not a core competence for Deutsche Telekom"... I would think DT should try to change that because software is going to be incredibly important-- and it already is. Having strong software partnerships is good, but also being able to develop software projects in house is a competitive advantage as well.

Re: Digital world
I noticed that line as well. I'm not sure if she meant that DT is not a software company so it should find partners that were experts in that area?

Re: Digital world
She seemed to have a theme of not being able to do things alone, so it stands to reason she meant that DT needs software partners. But I think that could be a bad strategy for a telecom to outsource development to partners. Unless someone around here can convince me otherwise that it's not such a bad idea.

Paving the Way for a Digital World
Deutsche Telecom has a valuable partnership with Huawei in that if, like Bronder said, Europe has "slept through the first phase of digitization," this strategic partnership will help to wake it up. She said Huawei is instrumental in helping it develop the telecom part of its cloud portfolio. I don't think Europe was really sleeping through digitization so much as it was so concerned about security that it moved cautiously.

Re: always a problem..
I think you are right, most standard laptops start at 4GB with the option to add more. I wonder how big the phone is and if they had so sacrife other features for the increased RAM.

I don't forsee any of those companies disappearing, but their roles in the tech landscape may change. We have already seen IBM do a good deal of morphing over the years.
