Try to take over the world!
You must be new here.
But can anyone explain why the US Chamber of Commerce is the top money giving lobbyist, by 3x?
Because the Chamber of Commerce is nothing but a nationwide business cabal? (not that I'm anti-business, but the Chamber(s) are anything but altruistic)
Maybe we do it because Jag mechanicals are garbage?
Or is troubleshooting flaming wiring harnesses and non-existent oil pressure part of the Jag mystique?
So far, you're the only one who gets it. Take one nice example and stick it in a museum or tour the shows with it (whatever it is). Crush or upgrade the rest.
Old cars and computers are garbage, simply because the market drove manufacturers to improve their game. There might a styling or nostalgia angle to an old product's appeal, but no one wants to live with a stock Model A in today's environment. However, that same Model A with a modern drivetrain, chassis and interior provides the best of both worlds. And can be very pleasant to gaze upon...
A perfect example is when Ford bought Jaguar. They tossed all the unreliable and overly complicated crap and replaced it with production-ready hardware, while keeping most of the kitsch that people seek. Never in my life have I seen so many 10+ year old Jags still on the road (and not on the side of the road) and it's simply because there's a plain old v8 engine sitting in the front and decently-engineered technology beneath the knick-knacks.
Wil Wheaton, is that you?
Aw heck with that, I pull wires for a living. Last thing I wanna do when I get home is pull more wires. I had a gaping hole in the plaster from where I installed a new bathroom door (plaster in old houses is so hard to keep from cracking into a larger hole than you wanted), so I just pulled a random 50' cat5 cable I had lying around. It travels across the attic and out to a WiMax antenna on a pole on my roof. (I share a network between my house & my shop 2 blocks away; it works pretty awesome, and it's a lot cheaper than a VPN. Plus as a bonus I only have one Internet acct to pay for.)
I later mudded up the hole (family was visiting, so it was a last minute repair) with this blue cat5 cable sticking out randomly. Then I felt bad about it, so I screwed a wall plate over it to look like there was a box in there. Then I just dragged my desk in front of it.

Might as well... There's little of value in that band anyway.
Nevermind any technical issues that might be at play.
Says "John Holmes"... lol
I'm guessing it's largely because there is no void. There's a reason that CompUSA couldn't survive...

Granted, this isn't scientific by any stretch, but in Ohio, new business filings are up year over year.
No one here has any idea what you're talking about.
Palm innovated its ass off with webOS. It failed anyway, but not because of that.
It's only innovation if you beat your competition to the punch. WebOS about three years too late.
