Winners & Losers April 21, 2016

Dear Amazon, Launch These Buttons



Winner: Amazon’s Dash button, which turned one last month. Use has grown 75% QOQ, and the e-tailer is releasing buttons for 70 new products from cat food to condoms.

Loser: Pureplay digital news agencies. Supposedly BuzzFeed’s listicle model is killing traditional journalism, but the site’s monthly unique visitors are declining. More people visit traditional media sites including ABC, CNN, and even USA Today.

Winner or Loser? Straight outta Coachella, Professor Galloway thinks he can rap.

Winner: Apple’s services business, which booked $20 billion in revenue last year – more than Facebook. Recurring revenue is the golden ticket, literally: Apple also retrieved over a ton of gold from broken products.
