Out of Power
January 21, 2009
A nice chap called Gareth sent me this - running tomorrow in the UK - which I have posted because:
1. It's inauguration day and it felt like I needed something, now I live over here.
2. We should never forget the power of culturally relevant timely current events based communication
3. The whole having different power chargers thing for every single thing I own REALLY ANNOYS ME.
I'm with Martha Stewart on this - it's wasteful and frustrating and a function of how companies are structured not how I live.
Best thing Nokia ever did [ok apart from the NaviKey interface] was have the same lead for every phone.
At least until the N-Series.
Remember how kettle leads would work on everything? That was great. I still use one as a UK adaptor for my Mac power cable.
So I'm glad Philips are trying to sort that out.
[Update: Dave sent me this equally timely opportunistic Veet ad about Bush.
Anyone seen any more?]
[Update: Looking forward rather than back, Pepsi are asking how the new President can 'refresh' the USA.]
