Lyft's Master Plan, Estimating Opening Weekend iPhone 7 Sales

Today's Above Avalon stories: 

  • Lyft's Master Plan
  • Estimating Opening Weekend iPhone 7 Sales

We will begin today's update by going over Lyft's 10-year master plan. Lyft co-founder and president John Zimmer published a post outlining his vision for personal transport. There were some interesting points raised about how autonomous cars will become mainstream and the role of ridesharing companies going forward. However, there were other parts where I disagreed with Zimmer's stance, especially when it came to a car's interior. The email then turns to my in-depth exercise of estimating opening weekend iPhone 7 sales. We go over my methodology, the numbers, and my conclusions. We then compare iPhone 7/7 Plus launch sales to iPhone 6/6 Plus and 6s/6s Plus.
