Thoughts, from a lost context

Discovered these thoughts scribbled (hypothetically) on a note in a draft on my phone. Have lost the exact context in which they were written, but they still seem intuitive yet incisive:

Now that I think about it after a few hours, maybe it’s not just who you work for. Another factor could be what state is the organisation you work for in. I was comparing my state – kindling a startup – to theirs – working in huge, established organisation. My priority is speed. The priority in their organisations may be stability. My focus is to get there somehow. Anyhow. For their organisations, the focus is to stay there.  And to stay within the rules, norms and processes. My focus is quick iteration. Their organisations must be focussing on long-term strategy. Though, one thing is common – the target for both of us is survival. That doesn’t change with size.

Apple advertises Samsung Tab

This is going to be launched on the market with the velocity of a fire hose and is going to just come in and take away iPad 2 sales so quickly that by the time we get to final hearing the full impact of the patent infringement will be to the detriment of Apple and to the benefit of Samsung.” – Apple’s Lawyers on the Galaxy Tab 10.1

If I were Samsung, I’d highlight those quotes in my product advertisements.

Might even finally offer Apple some royalty payments, for using the quote :)
