this is in contrast to english, where have explictly means own. the closest match for jo would be hold, and it has that use in the context of a container. if you think of yourself as a container, you can make that distinction in english, with some mental overhead.

We sell a bigger CPU. We sell bigger memories. We sell a service solving people's upgrade problems. We sell PCs to people who don't need them."
If you get all the fat out an internet smart appliance is about the same cost as the dumb appliance with the more limited embedded computer in it. The first stage will be TVs and microwaves that are on the internet. Perhaps we will have light bulbs and light switches there eventually.
