Find Data to Fill Gaps You might go to a store and check out how a certain phone looks, or talk to friends who have the phones you’re thinking of buying. 4. Process the Data Since you have lots of data, it's important to bring it all together. You sort through the data, discard what’s irrelevant, and weigh the pros and cons. 5.
