Today's rants, 29 May 08
What's with this insipid logo? (Not picking on this one particularly; there've been several of late, turning an originally cute idea into too cutesy, too often):
Is Google loosing the plot? Did it ever have one? How many good ideas/songs/books can one person have before it all starts to unravel?
With Guambat's power bill tipping out over $1,000/month (Guam has a horrible power generation issue; see this and this and this and this), Guambat has been crawling around the townhouse looking for things to turn off. I mean turn OFF.
Not possible. It seems that every appliance that plugs into a power mains has some kind of gizmo or other (useless digital clocks being a big culprit, especially on Guam where there are so many power bumps that having a digital clock at all is as useless as an outdoor ice-skating rink).
So, this rant is, WHY CAN'T THEY MAKE ELECTRICAL GOODS WITH AN OFF SWITCH THAT REALLY MEANS OFF?
