@devurandom also samsung bakeries vs samsung wind turbines vs samsung ships vs samsung streetwear vs samsung ... basically everything. There are two competing electronics groups within the chaebol, mainly because Samsung Electronics were being dicks about supplying electronics to Samsung Construction & Trading (C&T), so C&T set up their own electronics division out of spite.
I worked for C&T for a short while

At the far corner of pianos/lighters, you find the hardcore experimental musicians, following in the steps of Annea Lockwood, setting pianos on fire.
Lockwood's most infamous piece of the 60s or 70s is called 'Tiger Balm', which includes a lewd recording.
I had heard of it, but never actually heard it when I met Lockwood in San Francisco having a coldest-winter-I-ever-spent experience of foggy summer weather, so lent her a coat for a few days and she posted me the record!
It was not shocking at all, but a rather nice collage, which is no longer out of print. https://audiographics.bandcamp.com/album/7704a-tiger-balm
Anyway, Lockwood was possibly the most radical of all the boomer composers and everyone should know her excellent music.
im a boring 1/-1 type.....
but... i want to spread the awareness that also BIC lighters can be refilled with gas

@SuricrasiaOnline Nidec Sankyo have got them beaten. Their products page - https://www.nidec.com/en/nidec-sankyo/product/search/ - features all sorts of serious industrial and electronic kit. But under "Other Products" is something entirely charming ...
