A long time ago there was a company that built cheap television sets, the way this company did it was to take an expensive high end television and start clipping out components until the TV didn’t work anymore, they would reattach the last component and saw the TV was working again.
Then, they would look elsewhere in the TV to start clipping components and so on until they took out 80% of the cost of the high end TV in components, they still had a working TV selling at a reduced price.
The TV Company was successful until the reliability went down the toilet right along with the many un-happy customers.
How many of us still employed, see the parallel here??
