[nhemexzg] Technology to cut corners did not exist yet

Sometimes the older version of a product is higher quality than a newer version, because the technology to make at lower cost (but lower quality) did not yet exist when the old one was made.

This seems problematic: technology marches forward and things get worse.  Probably intellectual property issues preventing a different manufacturer from continuing to produce the higher quality version.
