comment Is it bad practice to create new objects without storing them?
@BalusC: With respect, I don't see what makes it fishy and in what way having a factory method is better (I assume your example is analogous to mine, and getInstance() is a factory and not a singleton).

comment Given a set of VLSI chips, how do I determine which are good?
Consider the case where all chips are good (or is this not a valid input?) How would the divide-and-conquer for the first part handle this? Or if the good/bad split is 50/50 and all the answers are NO (each pairs has one good and one bad)?
