Performance vs Time graph
Magnetic Tape based Floppy Disks
8 inch floppy disk drive 14 inch floppy disk drive
5.25 inch floppy disk drive
3.5 inch floppy disk drive
8 inch drives (used in mini computers) were better than 5.25 inch drives (used in desktop computers) But 8 inch drives were not affordable for the new desktop machines. The simple 5.25 inch drive, assembled from technologically inferior "off-the-shelf" components, was an "innovation" only in the sense that it was new. However, as this market grew and the drives improved, the companies that manufactured them eventually triumphed while many of the existing manufacturers of eight inch drives fell behind.
CDs & DVDs to Downloadable Media
Downloadable Digital Media
the 1990s, the music industry phased out the single. Consumers with no means to purchase individual songs. Downloads were initially free, and then by online retailers such as the iTunes music store & Amazon.com This low end disruption eventually undermined the sales of physical, high-cost CDs.
Minicomputers Personal Computers
were originally presented as an inexpensive alternative to mainframes and mainframe manufacturers did not consider them a serious threat in their market. Eventually, the market for minicomputers became much larger than the market for mainframes. Similarly, the market for main frames and mini-computers was seriously disrupted by Personal Computers. Although they were not at all competitive at the time of their introduction in the 1970s, by the mid 1980s they had improved exponentially and could compete directly with the more expensive machines.
•Compu ter Printer
printing had a high overhead cost but very low unit cost compared to computer printers, and superior quality But printers, especially laser printers have improved in speed and quality only black ink or one or two ink colors, offset printing may offer a more cost-effective solution four-color printing, digital may offer advantages in lower up-front costs Without question, digital printing offers the most affordable way to customize marketing materials, direct mail pieces, letters, etc.
digital cameras suffered from low picture quality and resolution and long shutter lag Quality and resolution are no longer major issues and shutter lag is much less than it used to be Convenience of small memory cards and portable hard drives Holds hundreds or thousands of pictures No need to develop these pictures Digital camera consists of pixels The more pixels your image contains, the more detail it has the ability to describe
