Hammers and nails

If you’re on the buying side of the IT industry, you’ll love the “42 is the answer” post by Storagebod. The really fun part describes vendors trying to properly position themselves ... and failing in the process:

When all you have is a hammer, every problem looks a nail but even if your hammer is the best hammer in all the world and sure you could bang in a screw, at the end of the day, there will be dissatisfaction with results.

BTW, his question that gives the answer 42 is way too narrow (although personally relevant; just read his post); Douglas Adams took a much wider perspective.
