Where's the "Mod this comment up" button when you need it?

They had a breakthrough, but then didn't know where they were going or what to do with it, or which direction to take it to keep the breakthroughs coming: business? gaming? home computing? "Ahh, we'll do 'em all in a half assed sort of way"...
