Flip software comes in different versions: the Learning Edition, the
Professional, and the Enterprise Version. :-)

Abandoning consistency seems cheap yet rewarding: we can lie to our friends,
we can cheat our closest ones, we don't have to keep our promises. It's our
happiness what "we are most generally interested in". Especially with
people we are close with, whom we know how to hurt. Lying is easy: when
