Google reportedly has teamed up with Intel to target the corporate market with its Glass eyewear, and it will use an Intel processor in the next iteration of the device instead of the Texas Instruments chip it now uses. The partnership makes sense, given that Glass has failed to make much headway in the consumer market. "It's a major coup for Google to get Intel, and this bodes well for them," said Ronald Gruia, a research director at Frost & Sullivan. Intel reportedly will promote Glass to hospital networks, manufacturers and other companies.

People who have read "The Innovator's Dilemma" by Clayton Christensen would have recognized Google's mis-step immediately.

If you are thinking about disruptive tech and its effect on the market...take a look here first to learn from others who have already made the avoidable mistakes:

What was your initial reaction to news of the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack?
It demonstrates that all critical infrastructure sectors are at high risk of disruption by cybercriminals.
Everyone will be paying for this attack in the form of higher energy costs.
Governments need to work more closely with private industries to protect networks for the sake of public safety.
It's a global problem. An international alliance must be formed to hold the perpetrators accountable and prevent future attacks.
