Very little technology is revolutionary. Most bright shiny objects are evolutionary and it isn't until each one solves a problem that customers embrace it. The technology we use today for digital media players like iPods was invented before 1939.

Payment is complex and does not benefit from revolutionary approaches. Evolution allows you to course correct to find the balance between your goals and your customers' expectations.
