Cone-Strength and Weakness

Strength

•Simple, sleek design – small and movable

•Minimalistic interface – facilitates use

•Allow consumers to minimize time spent browsing through music/creating playlists, thus increasing productivity

•Further innovation is expected to be accessible through software updates (such as multiple user recognition)

Weakness

•Will not always be 100% correct about what “you are thinking” as consumer preferences change daily – also applicable to its automatic volume feature

•Data collection is required before setting up the playlist

•Would require more data to be collected in order to be 100% sure of consumer preferences

•Need Wi-Fi for setting a playlist which cannot be use outside of  individual’s house or apartmentImage
