How Would You Beat Apple Vision Pro Using Jobs-to-be-Done?
This week, we dive into the world of Apple's latest innovation: The Vision Pro. Lauded as the pinnacle of personal electronic devices, the Vision Pro has set the tech industry abuzz. Many are left questioning its purpose - a mystery we aim to unravel using our trusted Jobs-To-Be-Done methodology. Will this enigmatic device live up to its hype, or is it a leap too far even for the giants of Cupertino? Jay places his bet on the Vision Pro not only succeeding, but rewriting history as the most profitable, most satisfying product ever created.
