Stripe Invoicing – Misses the Point!

Stripe has just launched a new invoicing tool to help its customers create invoices faster and more efficiently. However, it misses the point!

Stripe has offered invoicing options for some time within its standard platform, but now they have decided to segment it out and try to charge for something that was previously for Free (without telling anyone).

Additionally, the invoicing product only seems to be tailored to its current customer base, which is very tech / startup / businesses that require a developer heavy!

Oh… and I forgot to mention that they want to take 0.5% of your entire invoicing price just to provide you with super basic tech you really should be getting for Free.

No wonder this is getting heavily downvoted on ProductHunt!

Better luck next time Stripe. This could have been good, but missed the mark.

Shutterstock has over 350 million photos and vectors at the beginning of 2021 – with approximately 10 million videos.

Great collection, but very expensive for the average creator. They have tried to focus on the top end of the business market.

I came across this about a year ago and it is amazing! I find this mix to be amazing to run in the background when I’m trying to get stuff done.


Ideas are just a Multiplier of Execution

I came across this image a while back from Derek Sivers (who started CDbaby). Its an old image, but I think it explain a lot.

A few people have mentioned to me recently that they have new business ideas, but they are scared to tell too many people as they think their idea could be copied. I replied to them stating that they shouldn’t be worrying about the idea – and everything comes down to execution!

Dogecoin Pump and Dump – But NO Dump just yet

DOGEcoin is a meme coin with no value at all. It seems like the Redditors on Wall Street Bets are doing a pump and dump, but its been just over a week now and dump hasn’t really happened.

It seems like the Buy and Hold game is on.

Loving the fact that this joke coin now has a market cap of $32 billion.

MKBHD unboxes and then shows off the Apple Airtags and how they work.

It seems like this is a nice addition for Apple, but it is just a direct ripoff of Tile. Its not exactly the type of innovation you expected from Apple in the Steve Jobs era.
