  1. More iPad Minis may ship in 2013. Here’s what that means for retailers

    It would be too premature to call it a sea change, but it at least looks like smaller tablets are here to stay. And in perhaps no industry is that more compelling than in-store retail.

  2. What does it take to turn around a Web company? A look inside the only two we've ever seen

    Every time a has-been startup like Myspace or Digg or a big public company like Yahoo or AOL attempts a Web turnaround, the tech media is quick to remind them that Web turnarounds never work.

  3. Houzz's torrid growth comes down to the three C's: Content, Commerce, and Community

    In Silicon Valley, tales of startups growing at outrageous rates are a dime a dozen. In too many cases, however, those growth narratives are carefully crafted by PR crack teams to highlight the appropriate vanity metrics, while ignoring the mundane or even unhealthy businesses laying below the surface. For example, a headline-worthy 1,000 percent growth rate is not that meaningful when it’s from 1,000 monthly active users to 11,000, and all of those users are free. That same rate of growth within a larger business or one that monetizes its audience effectively is a far different story.

  6. Why increasing revenues can be bad for startups

    Fortune 500 enterprises and startups alike face constant pressure to increase revenues. Naturally, that’s not surprising. Ultimately it’s why we found startups in the first place. Meanwhile, investors want to be a part of growing companies, and smart employees want to be part of the next big thing, not the last. But this intense pressure to grow often pushes management into unhealthy and risky decisions. Take, for example, the demise of Ecomom.com following the tragic suicide of its founder/CEO, Jody Sherman.

  7. CEO Supper Club: Does ecommerce 2.0 need its own brick and mortar to survive?

    Something interesting is going on with ecommerce 2.0. On one hand, it's aimed at replicating more of the in store experience online -- whether that's customer service, personal shoppers or just brand affinity.

  8. CEO Supper Club: East Coast entrepreneurs smack talk West Coast VCs

    In an earlier segment of our sit down dinner with Thrillist/Jack Threads' Ben Lerer, Birchbox's Katia Beauchamp, Warby Parker's Neil Blumenthal, and One Kings Lane's Doug Mack, we talked about why more of the ecommerce 2.0 movement isn't emanating from Silicon Valley. In this segment, we talk about why some Valley VCs are starting to sour on it as well.
