Just read this in Seth Godin's marketing blog. It's a short little ditty about how improving on what consumers complain about won't necessarily get you to sell any more of your stuff. Mostly I'm posting it cause it talks about durians!!

And here all this time I have been waiting for the stinkless durian to hit the market... Wow, there goes that plan right out the window into the pile of putrified fruit... So much for making that investment windfall from it too... Maybe someone should make canteloupes and kiwi fruits stinkier...

Maybe you would be allowed to eat them on public transport though.

Durians without the heavenly smell?!
No way I'm giving up on that!

Isn't it said: 'You can take a Durian out of the stench but not the stench out of the Durian'?

I think they said that about garlic. Or maybe gym socks.

I want to try one so bad but I can't....I've had opportunities when I was younger but passed it up. The next one I see, I'm eating
