There was a time when people would say "Wow, are those shoes that have roller skates on them? Why not throw a USB drive in that?" And if you remember those days, you remember the golden years of tech gadgetry. For nerds, it was a glorious time. William Gibson was like Lou Reed. Any crazy idea that ended in "the internet" was investor-friendly. Every job had a pool table in the lobby. People could close for Star Wars Day! And now what do we have? The My Portable Peripherals 4GB USB Hard Drive.
It's not that four gigs of space isn't a lot. That's about one DVD-R worth of room, after all, so it's very useful. It's just that, well, look at it. If you're after a way to prove how businesslike you are, the My Portable Peripherals 4GB USB Hard Drive is fine. But would it have killed them to make it "Neo-Blue" or "Green-ternet"? Even just a few?
The workplace of today is full of the kids of yesterday. The kids that grew up on Optimus Prime and Darkwing Duck. These are kids that know how personality can make anything better. Didn't the My Portable Peripherals 4GB USB Hard Drive people do any market research? Weren't they ever young?
Imagine if the My Portable Peripherals 4GB USB Hard Drive was orange and blue and there was a little fist on the end of the retractable swivel connector. Wouldn't that have flown off the shelves? As it is now, the My Portable Peripherals 4GB USB Drive is just a nice, cheap way to store and transfer data, like maybe from your old faithful desktop to your <a href="http://sellout.woot.com/">newly refurbished netbook</a>. But with just a little personality, the My Portable Peripherals 4GB USB Hard Drive could have been a global phenomenon.
So one day, when you run a thumb drive company, keep all this in mind. Because the children of today will be growing up too. And by then, we'll be sold out of the My Portable Peripherals 4GB USB Hard Drive, so we'll probably be happy to work with you!
But would it kill you to put some roller skates on the bottom?

And why was that? Because there were plenty of reasons it might have popped up. Learning cursive, mandatory push-ups, that freaky semester of square dancing... did anyone else have that? Those wrists got a great workout! Why weren't the children of yesteryear crawing to their vintage gaming systems in agony?
It was the simple pencil sharpener that laid the strong foundation for the mighty wrists that America used to be known for. An amazingly complex invention that would have confused even the scholars of Verona, the pencil sharpener was at once an agent of entropy and a guardian of creation. What does the computer have that can compare with that? Notepad?
Don't make us laugh.
Wear this shirt: when you're working on the three r's: Readin', Ritin' and Ratchety crankin'.
Don't wear this shirt: if you think that's a freaky kind of missile launcher. Pick up a history book, Count Zero. It wasn't that long ago.
This shirt tells the world: "Every girl's crazy 'bout... oh, I was going to say chocolate."
We call this color: Unleaded Asphalt
Design Placement: Centered
3X - S: 8.5" x 9.38"

Thank Eru, Rao, and Crom alike that my deliverer has at last arrived! When my enemies turned me into a blend of 36% White Riesling, 32% Sauvignon Blanc, and 32% Chardonnay, I thought all was lost. All the might of my steadfast companion <a href="http://wine.woot.com/blog/viewentry.aspx?id=6072">T��thstejnn</a> the Red was for naught against such infernal bewitchments!
Doomed to eternity as an easy-quaffing white wine with mouth-watering notes of pears, apricots, peaches, orange blossoms, pineapple, apples, and flowers - such indignity! Small consolation indeed that my mid-palate is long, complex, and richly textured!
Now, listen well, for here is how to break my curse and free me from my bondage! First, get ahold of some wolf's tongue, and - OK, yeah, that's good. Might as well go ahead and open the bottle. You'll have to do that at some point, I guess. Hold fast, T��thstejnn and my other comrades! Thanks to this savior, I shall rejoin the battle soon! Now, draw a seven-pointed star on the ground, about three feet wide, and put the wolf's tongue -
Hey, what are you doing? Why are you getting those glasses out? This is no time for a drink! The hour of my deliverance is at hand! Now put those glasses down and get back here and - hey, what's - oh, wait - no, no - you mean to drink me? No! No! Get me out of this glass! Hold, mortal! Stop! This shall not pass! No, wait, please, just - noooooo....!
