The next morning, Alex and Bren go in to look at their product. What they have designed, basically, is a big, bulky side table. It has a wood top with two rectangular holes in it, and there are two wire baskets hanging through those holes. There's a Plexiglas lid over the whole thing that's on hinges, so the idea is that you'd put crap on the top of it, and then you'd have your in/out baskets hanging there so that you could see them. Alex is all kinds of excited when he sees the desk, because he thinks it is incredibly awesome. He interviews that an enormous "burden was lifted" when he saw it, because he was so blown away by his own brilliance. "We have knocked the ball so far out of the park," he says, and then he tells Bren that he desperately wishes he could really have the rights to sell the thing. "You could make a million bucks," he says. Here's the thing: It's a cart. On wheels. It's a wheeled cart. Basically, what it does is multiply your desk. It doesn't really solve clutter to just have more horizontal surfaces. But Bren and Alex are positively wetting themselves over the awesomeness of this design. Bren says that despite his usual pessimism, he finds that he's optimistic about this. "I fear the lashing that Magna Corp will take in the Boardroom over this," he tells Alex. It's like he's having a premonition, but he's looking at it upside-down.
