There are several examples. I read 'Becoming a Better Value Creator' by Anjan V.Thakor. This is a very good book from University of Michigan Business School Management Series. In this book Anjan asks the question 'How do you destroy value?' and provides several bulletted answers including the following two. * Developing products that do not meet market needs * Creating nonstandard local solution for global needs These answer will help each of us derive examples from our experience. There are several electonic gadgets sold in the market with poor quality and limited shelf life. Customers pay the price and discard the products in few days or weeks. These are good examples.

How about specific examples of products that you think have no real value addition? How about Microsoft Vista?

What are you? You sound like one of those do-good liberals.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
