pow_pow~you have zero understanding of business, economics or event the natural world. adapt or die.
1. adapting does not mean leaving your core compentency. Apple has developed it's computers over decades, and they offer other products, but they still offer computers
2. facebook didn't start as that site. That site was called facemash and had little to do with facebook other than that it was developed by zuckerberg.
3. lego is a prime example of this. the company rapidly expanded in the 2000's to include theme parks, movies, etc. They grew so much they'd lost sight of their core competency, toys. They refocused in the late 2000's divesting their non core assets and the years since have been the most profitable in the company's history. But they still had their core product, which is what allowed them to survive.
4. I'm not saying there aren't exceptions, there are many. But good business principles have companies focus on their core competencies for a reason. Sometimes that does shift, but there's not doubt that historically it has been clothing for eastern, and i don't think it's something that should be forgotten so soon
5. you're right, i know nothing, if you've gotten this far ignore everything i just said
