Disruptive Innovations Tech
Disruptive Innovations Tech
Thereupon, the word Disruption (or disruptive) originated from the Latin verb disrumpere (tearing, breaking, smashing, or passive: bursting) – means interruption, disturbance, breakage, disorder or destruction.
Innovations vs disruptive innovations
The difference between a typical innovation, as it can occur in all industries, moreover a disruptive innovation lies in the way it changes. As a result, innovation is a renewal that does not fundamentally change the market. But merely develops it further, disruptive innovation is a complete restructuring or destruction of the existing model.
For example, the invention of the compact disc was merely a further development of the classical gramophone. After that, press plants responsible for manufacturing the gramophone adapted their processes to the new compact disc. As a result, dealers began to include the compact disk in their product ranges with the same high price tag.
Napster, iTunes and Spotify
However, the emergence of digital music distributors such as firstly Napster and Emule, but then, the iTunes Music Store further Spotify. On the other hand, it meant the gradual dismantling of the local music business. All of a sudden, they initiate a disruptive process. At this point, they allowed consumers to purchase their favourite songs online and allowing artists to succeed without a record label.
The new offering of iTunes was an attack against the whole music industry, moreover, the countless record shops. After all, digital music distributors punished the entire antiquated music industry for their monopolistic, hence, selfish behaviour. For years the consumer got blackmailed into buying full albums instead of allowing them to buy only their favourite songs.
Henceforth, another big subject is financial technology, meanwhile known as “fintech”. It describes a business that aims at providing financial services by making use of modern technologies, moreover, cheap and user-friendly software applications.
All these changes also lead to so-called unicorn startups, which translates into a private company with a valuation of over US-Dollar one billion.

Disruptive Innovations Tech
Therefore, disruptive technologies (often referred to as “disruptive innovations”) are innovations that replace the success story of existing technology, product or service or that, above all, completely displace it from the market.
Furthermore, why do things have to stay the way they are. After all, why not rethink business models to start looking for synergies. Even more, why does a cost centre have to be a cost centre?
Consequently, you can question things and have your own non-traditional business opinion. Hence, don’t be boring – instead, take the momentum and add disruptive action to your life.

This Apple Watch Series 4 is the ultimate device for a healthy life.
The Apple Watch Series 4 is both innovative furthermore now also mature. It not only offers a larger display. Finally, speed problems are also not an issue. Unquestionably, it is the Smartwatch you’ve been waiting for all this time?
No, people didn’t want a bigger screen for the Apple Watch. The wish list included more battery, wrist gestures, independence from the iPhone or sleep tracking. All things that would make the Apple Watch a better wrist computer. Geeks have been very satisfied with the Apple Watch since the first version.
First and foremost there is the new design. The watch is minimally larger and has a much larger and above all rimless screen. The latter is the big highlight of the new watch. It was clear after the iPhone X at the latest that such a screen would come at some point. But the fact that it makes the watch so much more beautiful only becomes apparent when you wear the new Apple Watch.
Without a doubt, the case has now become a little flatter. Unfortunately, this makes it difficult to feel the case blindly.
However, the new watch is again available in two case sizes. Both are larger than their predecessors (38 contrary to 42 millimetres). Now you have the choice between a 40-millimetre case alternatively a 44-millimetre case. A difference in the size of two millimetres seems marginal, but in the world of watches, it means a huge leap.
You don’t have to worry that the Apple Watch will now pull your wrist down like a thick diver’s watch. My “big” device weighs just 36.7 grams without a wristband. A joke compared to a classic wristwatch. The difference in size between the old and the new Apple Watch goes down quickly in everyday life, and you hardly take it after a few hours.

Another highlight of the case is the reworked crown. Instead of the red dot criticised last year, it now has an elegant red circle. Not only does this look much more discreet, but this change was also necessary to make an ECG possible (more about this later).
But the crown not only looks better, but it also feels better. Apple has integrated haptic and acoustic feedback. When you scroll through menus, you feel and hear that. The illusion is so good that you no longer have the feeling of turning a freely rotating wheel. It feels like there are gears and springs hidden somewhere.
It’s “just” a very smart combination of tones and haptic feedback. The Taptic Engine is responsible for the latter. A small metal pin is thrown magnetically back and forth and generates precise vibrations. This technology is also used for the silent alarm clock and all notifications. It was one of the best features of the first Apple Watch, along with the easily changeable wristbands.
Many new dials
Since the Apple Watch hardware and software merge seamlessly like no other Apple product, the new dials must also be part of the design. During the first few days with the watch, two of them were particularly noticeable.
On the one hand, there are the photorealistic dials that show fire, water and coloured dust. They are an eye-catcher on the large screens. The detail on the side: These are not computer animations. Apple has built extra-large models of the case, for example, igniting a fire and filming the whole thing.
The second dial that deserves special attention is the Infograf dial. This looks fascinatingly overloaded in the advertising photos. But it is much more than just a dial.
It is a dial generator. Because each of the numerous complications (the little info appetisers on the dial) can be individually selected and, above all, deactivated. This allows you to design much simpler and more elegant dials. One can even use classic watch designs. For example, the Panda dial with three black circles on a white background is popular with watch fans.
All these improvements and innovations make the fourth Apple Watch an even better watch game and the most significant update since the first generation.
Moreover, the first considerable revision of the Apple Watch has succeeded. The Apple Watch Series 4 offers a new user experience thanks to its larger display, faster processor and many other details and in our opinion is currently the best Smartwatch on the market. A great feature is also that you can control Netflix, Spotify or many other Apps without using the iPhone logically also when Airpods are connected.. The price is justified for the technology and design you get.
Again, the leap from the third to the fourth generation is the biggest Apple Watch has made since its presentation in autumn 2014. It is now an even better fitness tracker, an even better wrist computer and above all an even more fascinating wristwatch. As a fan of mechanical watches, I can’t help but be amazed at the dedication and attention to detail that the watchmakers from Cupertino have shown.
So wearing a classical watch on the left armwrist and Apple Watch 4 on the right one – just great. We got addicted to Jean-Claude Biver’s style.
