Ah now careful now. Lexus is why I make a living. Currently working to
fill aan order for 12,000 shift knob blanks of birdseye maple. Seriously.
Those birdeye steerring wheels and shift knobs are made from good Maine
maple which is shipped to Japan.
I used to work for a small software company that ultimately went bankrupt, due
mostly to stagnant sales -- which was in turn due, IMO, at least in part to
the names of the flagship products: "The HHPC Systems Product" (run on a
mainframe) and "The HHPC Network Product" (run on an NT LAN).
Really. I'm not kidding.
I told the CEO that they needed better names. He disagreed. I said "As product
names go, 'Model T' isn't very flashy -- but how many cars would Henry Ford
have sold if he had called it 'The Ford Motor Company Transportation
Product'?" Made no headway at all.
