War of the Default Settings
Keywords:default settings, nudging, ringtones, Porter's Five Forces
Products have specific default settings embedded in them, which has massive implications for consumers and industry in a robonomic society. While the default settings may make things more convenient for the consumer, such settings influence consumption and expenditures. The nudges that the consumer experiences from default settings will not only influence consumption patterns but also intensify competition among suppliers who want a specific product nudged on the consumer. Here, the author discusses the political struggle inherent in the default settings, highlighting the conflict between the demand- and supply-side as well as the intensification of conflicts between various suppliers of technologies.
