Could this be Blackberry’s last ditch effort to find some kind of relevance in the market? This appears to be a prototype image of the latest offering, the bWatch. I could be wrong though.
Some of the features:
- LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY! (who needs Sapphire Crystal?!)
- Back light
- Easy to see in sunlight
- Battery stays charged for 2 years AND is replaceable!
- Water resistant
- Adjustable wristband
- It is only $15!
** UPDATE – This appears to be a CASIO CA53W-1 Vintage watch with a fake logo. Ah well…
Or atleast it appears to have hired Radio Shack to design their latest MacBook. I mean, come on…what is the deal with that chicklet looking keyboard? All of you Mac freaks who just drool over every design that Apple ever releases are in complete denial or on drugs if you think the new MacBook is cutting edge.
I guess this proves that yes, even Mac, the computer that is supposed to be more creative than the PC can come up with the Edsel, Pontiac Aztek or Ford Fusion. Remember the toilet seat MacBook?
Is the Macbook just a nod to retro design?
Ok, so what about my claim of Apple hiring Radio Shack? Well take a look at the following picture. Yes, kinda looks like one of those photos you’ve probably seen in an out-dated college textbook on information technology. This is actually the Radio Shack TRS-80 computer from the early 1980’s. Nice keyboard design. Those things were so cheap to manufacture because they didn’t need to spend money on springs and other mechanics in those keyboards. )I remember Tandy nerds whining and complaining that their chubby fingers were having difficulty typing their online D&D character names on the little keys.) Tandy soon jumped back to regular sized keys with the CoCo II and CoCo III.
One can draw a conclusion with this new Apple design…they are losing money and getting a sinking feeling in their stomachs, worried that Microsoft’s and Dell’s portable mp3 players will eat up their market share…heck who knows what the next Ipod will look like. If the new MacBook’s keyboard is any indication, I’m willing to bet the next iPod will come complete with wireless headphones and a mullet.
Looking at the way some folks dress these days can be quite disturbing. I mean, seriously, do some people even own a mirror? And if the do, do they look at it before they leave the house? They don’t make clothes like they used to. I’m fond of the groovy 70s style of clothing. Some of you don’t remember the 70s, maybe because you were too young, weren’t born yet, or were doing drugs. In any event, below you will find some of the best styles of the 70s that JC Penney had to offer.
This Western style was all the rage in the late 70s, and survived in the early 80s as well. The outfit just scream Urban Cowboy! (remember that movie?)
Now how is that for a pair red pants and giant white leather belt? I swear, that was the only style of pants and belt combo you could get back in the 70s.
Yes, the finest 70s PJs for men of the 70s. Wow, looks like a giant polo shirt. I don’t remember wearing anything like this back then.
Ahhh yes…people did go to the beach on occasion…when the fallout and medical waste was not floating around.The requirement for this is a hairy chest.
Now there is one sharp 70s styling dude. I’m sure he has the job interview at Radio Shack in the bag!
Don’t forget, even toilets need some 70s style!
Though not a piece of clothing, it is a fond memory of what 99% of our bathrooms looked like back in the 70s. If you didn’t have a white toilet, then your toilet was probably some other color such as yellow, sky blue or red.
