So when going to buy an product, whether a robotic
vacuum, electric car or scissors, the price can be from
something negative to anything positve depending on
condition and features. Desire is a bit of a difficult
entity because we all can be stupid with money.
What if there was a registry,
sort of like a stock
exchange of bleeding edge technology, where the newest
of the new can be displayed as the pinacle product of
that category. There might be a few product conflicts
but hopefully cutting edge newness will sift the old from
the new to give upper product value limit. The extreme
value for a particular bleeding edge product.
I was imagining that product makers that think they have
bleeding edge can check and register their price and
features. People who want something, say a washing
machine, can look up the washing machine category and
check the ultimate washing machine price and features
against what they were going to buy to see the amount
of desire being paid versus actual value of features.
Every product has a bleeding edge. Art is the perfect
reproduction. Jewels have the cutting, polishing and now
manufacture. Mining has purity.
Really if it has a value, it is not the amount, it's the

Description (displayed with the short name and URL.)
||Automated algorithm checks the listing and autos increments spec and price every second
||Sounds like a registery of dangerous kitchen knives.
||I think this would give manufacturers an incentive to stop actually
improving their products, and instead just move all the screws around
every few days or so, just so the product can be re-listed and keep
appearing as the latest and greatest.
||Lexicographical styptic, [Ian]?
||It comes with a styptic dipstick, as illustrated in this styptic
dipstick diptych. The Academie Francaise are all over it. One of
them told me, 《I'm over it, et tous ces autres mecs aussi.》
||//They need an incentive?//
||Depends on the product. I'm led to believe that washing powder
manufacturers have been doing this for decades.
||New listings would have to have new features or there would be no hacking a lump out of the market and making a pile of obsolescence. If specifications were lied, the multitude of reviewers would certainly say so.
||Wouldn't the phrase be translated from older phonetics - Ugh, Ahhhhhh.
||Newness is not, in itself, of any value, and the market already discriminates by feature.
||Nobody at the bottom really looks up to the very top. Some exceptions , cars, maybe gaming computers the rest you have to know to search. The market still has class fields which with an edge registry may course more people to look through.
