    Designers are _selfish_ people

    or else how would they continually produce hardware that have simply no consideration for its forseeable neighbouring devices?

    This year's MVP gift is an assortment of leatherizer executive items, a hard-case gift box, containing a laser pointer pen, name card holder, and the 1GB thumb drive picture above.

    Elegant to look at, no doubt. But to know just about every system has USB ports aligned very close like sardines in a can, and then to dismiss all that in the name of aesthetics and make a USB device in the likes of a fat arrogant king that demands the "peasants" be gotten rid of in his presence. So not only does the drive refuse to share space with neighbouring connectors horizontally, it also haughtily takes up vertical real estate.

    What a selfish prick.

    This is why books like these sell so well.
