1. Golf Balls

Professional golf courses across the world have been forced to redesign holes to accommodate increased efficiency in golf ball technology. They were first made of wood. Then made of leather-bound feathers. Then Gutta Purcha. Then rubber with plastic. Then liquid with plastic. Technology abolished the constraints of the terrain. It was less difficult. People jumped the dogleg. Par 5 in 3. Double Eagle. No sweat. But the designer said, "The earth is a canvass."

How can you compete with that?

4. Room Dividers
