Weekly 5 from x5: October 24

October 26, 2016 Eric Mercer of Dx3

No business should ever copy their competition, but they should certainly offer up some competition. 

That's what's going on in the tech world this week. 

From Walmart getting into movie streaming with Vudu to Microsoft making speech recognition software that's accurate 94% of the time to AT&T looking into buying Time Warner, it seems like these companies are ramping up their game. 

But are they really?

It's great to expand the product base, but you know what they say: "too little too late." Offering something too similar, too late just seems like a business woke up one day and said, "guys, we should really get on this." 

While these new updates are the news, it'll take some time to see if they'll pay off. We have 2 main questions: will they pay off and will they offer more accessibility than already existing products?

To stay ahead we're making it a weekly habit to digest x5, produced by Eric Mercer at Dx3

Read up below. It's not enough to say what matters; the gold is in why it matters.
