The Resurgence of Consumer Electronics

Marc Andreessen, Serial Entrepreneur

Citing as example handheld innovations such as Flip video cameras and Jawbone headsets, serial entrepreneur Marc Andreessen claims that as of Spring 2010, consumer electronics are hot and viable in Silicon Valley once again. He argues that many of the devices in this most recent wave utilize existing chips and applications, but the market innovation comes from repackaging the technology with value-added software and services. He and his investors are very excited by the current state of possibilities.
