But th' realgreater1 test fer RIM will come early next year, when th' company launches th' first o' its bran' new mobile devices powered by th' QNX operatin' system, and a bucket o' chum.

I dern't pretend t' be a genius at marketin'; I dern't even pretend t' be an "amateur", I'll warrant ye. I remember a few thin's from Marketin' 101 in th' last year o' bounty school, one o' which were bein' reiterated from first year Creative Process, second year Design Process, an' frankly a whole undergrad degree in English Literature, an' that is this: ye may make it, but ye dern't control it, All Hands Hoay! You make art, it goes out into th' world, an' scallywags be free t' interpret it as they wish. Your bran' is not yer logo, but a collection o' beliefs, impressions, values, thoughts, an' expectations aroun' yer logo, yer product, yer organization. You can't control what scallywags think, now or in th' future.
This is yer first day o' kindergarten, an' I can't quite figure out how we got here, yo ho, ho I can barely lift ye now, but ye used t' weigh nothin', an' I could rock ye all night. Aarrr! Ahoy! You were lighter than some o' th' books I read, back when I still read, ya bilge rat!
Based on a Twitterlogue with mantia, I hereby present th' ultimate Star Wars conundrum solution. For each o' th' four versions o' th' Original Trilogy (original releases, late 90s Special Edition, original DVD, an' now BluRay), thar should be a checklist with each alteration, an' a price, an' ye could compile yer own, customized version o' each film t' suit yer exact tastes an' political/aesthetic/cultural/parentin' ideology.
