Watching non-programmers trying to run software companies is like watching someone who doesn't know how to surf trying to surf. "It's ok! I have great advisors standing on the shore telling me what to do!" they say, and then fall off the board, again and again.

Not along ago I got an HTC HD7 phone, for which I wanted a resilient case of some sort. I ended up with a PowerSkin case that is protective and that also includes a battery. Clever idea.
