Amazon needs to deliver an experience with the device that consumers are willing to pay for, so introducing the Oasis with new features is a way to do that. The leather case may not be worth it for many consumers, but a month long charge may be. Experimenting to...

Different consumers prioritize different factors. Each retailer needs to figure out which factors their most valuable consumers prioritize. The only retailers concerned with my ranking should be those who consider me valuable.

How many of your consumers fall into the lower middle class or shrinking middle class? If that is not your most valuable consumer set, you are not competing with Aldi or Lidl. If that is your most valuable consumer set, then you need to provide better quality food in...
