Anyway you slice it, it’s cheap as hell. But it’s a cheap piece of plastic that will get the job done. Cheap is all you need in this case. I rather have a cheap product that is exactly what I need than an expensive one with a bunch of stuff that doesn’t improve my life in anyway.

It’s not gonna win any design awards, sure, but it’ll sell well, be profitable and allow the company and it’s customers to benefit from one another — all while accomplishing the job it has to do perfectly. That’s better than winning a design award or having a snazzy website.

That’s progress.

That has meaning.

So give it a minute to settle in your brain. Don’t run to write it off just yet. Sometimes cheap is good. Sometimes cheap means quality.
