Discussion Questions:

  • Is one of the reason’s Dr. Brendan’s business is booming because of the economic downturn?  People do not have as much spendable money, and instead of investing in a new device, they are choosing to try to repair the old one first.  If the economy starts to improve, will his business suffer?
  • What other ancillary industries may arise from the boom in mobile computing?  How do potential entrepreneurs identify such trends early enough to capitalize on them?
