At the time of this posting it is late afternoon on December 21, 2012 in the US and in Australia today’s date is already December 22, 2012.
The End of the World, according to the Mayan Calendar, was supposed to occur on Friday, December 21, 2012.
There are not too many folks that are good at predictions. Growing up on the Canadian prairies, I know my local meteorologists had as much ability to predict a sunny and warm day as a pig has the ability to fly.
As a business, and one that wants to be around for a while, it is a primary goal of ours to predict what our customers want, and innovate new ideas to satisfy those predictions and needs. Sometimes we hit the nail on the head, and provide market-changing solutions. Slingshot is a fantastic example of that. Other times, we miss the mark, and a product is a dismal failure.
As long as we’re able to make better predictions than the Mayans, we should be able to succeed.
