Dwain, thanks for your thoughts! To be sure I’m understanding them, let me ask you a question.

Let’s say you’re looking at two items that are identical except for the life expectancy of the materials used in construction (for example, two identical pairs of shoes, made by the same shoe maker but using different grades of leather). It is proven to you that the better pair will last twice as long as the cheaper pair, and the better pair costs three times as much. To you, which pair represents the greater value?

I’d also like to provide a clarification on another point. You wrote ”Still, we must have objective tests to review a tool. All the “how it feels” stuff is added, but after the objective stuff.” I’m not talking about tool reviews. My thoughts relate to buying decisions and the relative values I place on competing products.

-- I'm selfless because it feels so good!
