    Default that next product

    I have never seen or heard "that next product". Doesn't it have to be "the next product"? Did the writer make a mistake or is it acceptable?

    330-141
    ex)To be considered creative, a product must be considered both original and functional...A mere replication, remake, or revision will not count as something really new...The more original that next product, however, the less the creator can be assured that it will meet the second criterion...

    By "that next product" the writer is referring specifically to the preferably original new product mentioned earlier in the text.

    Default Re: that next product

    Couldn't it also be a theoretical next product existing in the heads of imaginary creators?
