Blue Apron - changing or dying?

Interesting move by Blue Apron.

"Blue Apron to Sell Meal Kits in Stores to Buttress Sagging Deliveries Move comes as retailers like Walmart, Kroger and Amazon offer their own kits in fast-growing segment"

Makes you wonder if this is the pivot to bigger and better eg the Kraft of pre-made kits....or the grasping of a dying venture capital created "industry".

Thoughts on App only launches

Interested in hearing what peoples thoughts are on “app only” launches versus app+website.
eg Cohort -

Sorry but while I’d happily sign up to a new tool that just wanted my email address via a website….i’m not interested in signing up for ‘most’ tools that are going to require access to my cell phone (and all the data contained on it).
eg they are probably doing this so that they can easily pull in my contacts/geo location/mobile phone number etc to cross link and build network effect…….but if I don’t know you and I don’t trust you….why would I open myself to an attack vector.

Murdoch also sells "the family business" - two Aussie icons retiring in two days

Two business leaders in two days.....

Yet another major Aussie icon announcing selling "the family business" this time Fox selling to Disney.

You cant help but be inspired when you see how successful Murdoch and Lowy have been over their lifes work.
