What is a Game Changer?

A game changer is a person or thing that radically changes an industry or a company.
 

How Does a Game Changer Work?

For instance, when Apple introduced the iPod, the product was a game changer. It revolutionized the way in which music was purchased and consumed. Though other companies had already launched MP3 players, Apple's product had a more attractive design, a big marketing budget, and, most important, a music platform (iTunes) that virtually dictated how music would be distributed going forward.
