The Balance of Good Enough
Kirk and Fred discussing the trade-offs between selling more reliable equipment for different markets, costs, and how reliable can we make a product
Join Kirk and Fred as they discuss different aspects of the balance of a marketable reliability and costs.
- Most people owning iPhones add a case to help absorb the shock, as Steve Jobs may have put ID (industrial Design) and wanting a slim device over higher drop shock protection.
- A discussion about the many kitchen blender failures Kirk has had, but has decided not to buy a industrial strength restaurant blender for a premium as the commercial blenders fail too .
- The concern Kirk has with a AC-DC Li ion batter charger and potential high temperature of the outside surface how that may cause a burned hand as well as early life failure. (After creating this SOR Podcast the charger failed and Kirk’s FA showed a clear design weakness – may discuss in a later SOR)
