Gambling on CD-ROM.
Lowe, John B.
Library Journal, v113 n12 p37-39 Jul 1988
If the CD-ROM revolution is likened to gambling, players are information providers and consumers; the stakes are development, production, distribution, hardware, and software costs; and betting is represented by the costs of updating disks and hardware and software maintenance, and by pricing. Strategy should take into account cost savings, functionality, reliability, and shareability. (Eight references) (MES)
