Most of the current large players would fall into this category.

  • Twitter: It's like SMS and Email, but we'll do far less.
  • Facebook: We're building another MySpace clone.
  • LinkedIn: We're building a social network for professionals which they'll use once ever 4 years when they want to find a job.
  • Google: We're building a search engine after all the current search engines have said search has no value.
  • Mint: Give us access to all your bank accounts and show you balances with large font sizes.
  • Dropbox: We're building a file syncing service even though large companies like Microsoft already have these in the market, which don't get used much.
