What went wrong with Quibi

A few months ago, I wrote a blog post claiming that Quibi — the smartphone-centric streaming service meant for the in-between moments of everyday — would be a smash hit, despite what was then the early stages of coronavirus in America. Not maybe a month after that post, I started to eat my words and wish I had been more critical.
