i agree with the slicing off of the "AND" but how about some of these...
big business is like accounting, the newton is your andersen consulting (i
used to sub-contract for them way back when)
big business is like presidential elections, the newton is having your
brother run the swing state.
big business is a sword fight, the newton is indiana jones with a pistol
big business is like selling cheap cars, the newton is your lee iacocca
and my overall fave....
big business is programming for a living, the newton is like having a Mac

Oliver. I've been thinking about the above quote. It somehow sounds weak.
I've pondered over it, I think I came up with a simple way to make it have
more punch. I'm posting it here for the sake of public opinion. ;-) Does
second version sound a bit better?
BIG BUSINESS IS A JUNGLE. THE APPLE NEWTON IS YOUR MACHETE.
Just dropping the "AND" seems to have more "slice" to it, if you get my
drift. There, it's said. What think the public. :-)
