Once upon a time there lived Jack -- the sole designer and
manufacturer of TV sets that bore his name. He took pride in the
functional and aesthetic properties of his product. Jack TVs had a
slick screen that looked almost weightless, and a nice remote for
turning the TV on and off. Then one day an enterprising distributor
showed up in town and started bundling Jack TV together with other
home appliances and advertising rocks as a general tool for turning
off electronic devices. "It often works", he said. Jack shook his head
every time he saw a scratched or broken screen with his name on the
frame. He no longer told people he made those TVs as it became
difficult to look at the brutalized hunks of steel and glass with
pride. "I'm not brutalizing this TV set, I'm just throwing rocks at
it", one customer was heard to say. He didn't know there was a remote.
The distributor didn't tell him.
