>Today’s Bizarro cartoon is brought to you by Tampon Chandelier.
This cartoon was pretty popular with readers, as you might expect. Computers have become such an important part of virtually everyone’s life in our society and the story of these two companies and their founders is fascinating. It’s also interesting that the one with the better business sense but inferior design won the war in many ways. Apple is a huge and successful company, of course, but nothing like the size of Microsoft. It says a lot about life and the Utopian fantasy of meritocracy.
There are some cartoonists whose work is much more creative, clever, well-executed, and relevant than others, but who make a fraction of the money of less worthy products, too. I can’t think of any right now, but I’m sure they exist.
