I think things that can be used for multiple purposes will always trump those that only have just one use. There might be situations that come up where you might need something else than what that thing is currently being used for.
Xpal Power – the same company that sells the Energizer battery – have made a mobile phone that trumps John’s Phone in terms of simplicity. Called the SpareOne, it can sustain its charge for up to 15 years on just a single AA battery.
I’ve always been curious to know if those emergency buttons hidden under the bank teller’s table actually exist.

The season’s changing where I live and the rains are starting to fall harder and more frequently now. I enjoy having cool weather for a change, but I always worry when a light rainshower feels like it’s progressing to something much worse and stronger.
Off-days are unavoidable. If you find that you (or someone else you know) has been down in the dumps lately, then it’s time for some serious cheering up.
