comment What is a “kitchen sink approach”?
Hmm, the first definition at thefreedictionary.com/kitchen+sink seems to contradict its second definition. So "kitchen sink" can be used to refer to the last item, and it can also be used to refer to all the items before it?

comment What's the opposite of “prototype product”?
@vonjd, "turnkey" is the wrong term. Full fledged products can be both turnkey and non-turnkeys, they are not related in any way.
