    • The fallacy of the perfect mousetrap

      Univac was superior to the card reading IBM computer

      Betamax was superior to VHS

      The processor in the Apple//e was superior in algorithm processing to the initial processor in the first IBM PC when the speed was identical.

      There are many other examples. The fact is that better product does not by itself cause the world to beat a path to your doorway. It can help (and among geeks with money it often does help) but reaching the mass market requires more than just having the best product.
