    CANNOT TRUST THEM TO TELL YOU WHAT
    YOUR NEXT NEW PRODUCT WILL BE

  21. WE'RE JUST SITTING HERE TRYING TO PUT OUR PC
    JRS IN A PILE AND BURN THEM. AND THE DAMNED

    GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS, TO HEALTHCARE, AND TO SOLVING THE WORLD’S GREAT
    PROBLEMS. IT’S ULTIMATELY AN ANSWER TO THE QUESTION:
    HOW CAN WE LEARN MORE QUICKLY WHAT
    WORKS AND DISCARD WHAT DOESN’T?
