Wil Gomez has three numbers that are more important than marketshare.
Allow me to argue that marketshare is the least important of the numbers bandied about by techno charlatans these days. Far more important than marketshare is profitshare— the share of an entire business segment’s profits.
After that it’s customers and revenue.
Customers may beget revenue which begets profits, but even profitable products or companies go bust, simply because the profits were not sufficient to garner support for more investment. Profitshare is different, and no company leads Apple’s overall profitshare within various technology segments. Profitshare is a better measurement of a company’s health and well being than marketshare.
