News flash: companies can't succeed in the technology business all by themselves

From CES, the New York Times Bits blog reports that "the monolithic corporation" is in decline, replaced by networks of alliances, creating "a chaotic alchemy that is making business noisier and strategy even less pointed than in years past here."

While the acknowledgement of the importance of alliances is welcome, from my perspective, the only news about this is that it is news. Doesn't everybody know that companies can't do it all themselves anymore?
