    But, come on, the new-razor-technology-every-year is surely about convincing consumers to buy a new razor every so often and about charging outrageously for razor blades, all in the interest of repeat business? As I understand it, the de facto monopoly of Gillette (at least in my country) is about massive ad budgets and entrenched consumer preferences. Patents is not the barrier to entry here. Right?

    Sometimes, one need to careful correlation vs. causation. At other times, common sense suffices.
