Think of a bunch of successful technology companies, and ask yourself whether they were the first into their market? Facebook certainly wasn’t. Apple didn’t make the first home computer, mp3 player, smartphone or tablet — they waited, picked their moment and dominated once they entered. It’s certainly not hard to think of products that were first to market, but either way ahead of their time or quickly pushed out of the way by competition — the Visicalcs, the Virtual Boys, the Altavistas.
