Don't get me wrong, my children are very pleased to have siblings, but sometimes I think they'd rather not have them around all of the time. Rivalry between people who share blood is inevitable.

For any company developing mobile and online offerings (which is nearly all of them) it is this approach that they should follow. View competition as defined not just within your industry but also from everyone. Focus on people and benefits, not features and functions.
