September 28, 2007 Roundup
Quote of the day goes to a Los Angeles Times article about Disney hanging up its MVNO mobile phone service due to price and handset competition from the major carriers. The article quotes Mark Donovan at M:Metrics and Charles S. Golvin at Forrester Research, but the winning QOD goes to JupiterResearch analyst Julie Ask who said, "The stuff they were offering for families was right on target for what people want."
Probably not the full quote, but you still have to shake your head and say "what?" If it was right on target and what parents wanted then Disney wouldn't be shutting it down. Not too hard to figure that one out. Then again what do I know. As a parent, I'm only the target audience....
