    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“[Another question is how to change incentives for developing the technologies in the first place.] In the automotive and consumer-electronics industries, there are incentives to develop good, cheap DVD players or good, cheap cars, ...

It's not surprising that everyone wants a Cadillac instead of a Hyundai.”
