...Many years ago, when I was working in the semiconductor manufacturing industry, the design and product engineers had an inside joke around integrated circuit design. It was simply, "If you can't fix it, feature it." I later heard stories about the same attitude being prevalent in the design of early PCs.
(smile). Haven’t heard that in awhile, but it’s not just confined to the IC industry. When faced with a design flaw or product weakness, sell it as a feature.
