    Eh, I 'only' made $973,381,902 (861 out of 1695). I think I might try it again later, though when I can actually spend more than a minute or two on four years of decisions.

    I think this simulation would be more interesting if you had more features to play with (e.g. people whining about not having a PDA with 16-bit 320x320 color, built-in MP3, voice recorder, metal case, wireless, etc. could build a PDA with all those features and watch as the size and/or cost of the device goes through the roof!)

    I'm not sure how accurate the simulation is, when I can raise the price of a model and sell more of them.

    Well...ok so next move is to fake a big fire that'll completely destroy the company, and make off with my $1 billion + $change to a Carribbean island...where's the button for that?
