PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I'm currently reading Jerry Kaplan's excellent book "Startup: a Silicon Valley adventure". In this book, Kaplan, founder and CEO of GO Corp., details the founding, financing and eventual demise of his highly innovative company, including the development and workings of their product. What's so surprising about this book is just how timeless it really is - the names and products may have changed, but the business practices and company attitudes surely haven't.

You're right - innovation is not the right word here. I often just equate innovation with invention, and that's obviously not right. Replace innovation with invention ;) .

They are often confused. I used to do the same.

It's probably because "re-invention is the lowest form of innovation" (to re-word an old sarcasm / wit adage)
