To own or to use is not a new concept. I started grappling with this at least 12 years ago when I worked for a technology division at Sony and we developed a mobile music streaming service with Vodafone.

One of the chapters I am covering in a trend report I am working on (As a Service Trend) will focus on technology ecosystems.
