geekier than thou

So very, very right^H^H^H^H^H wrong

I just noticed that our organic grocery store sells a "Laser Enhanced" dietary supplement.

"Laser Enhanced" is an awesome slogan, but it's still waiting for a bright and exciting new field of technology to add value to.* For something you're putting inside your body, maybe not so much.

* Sadly, microcomputers missed the boat by about a decade on this one. The switch from floppy drives to CD-ROMs would have been perfect. "Tired of rubber-banded stacks of floppies? Get the new LASER-ENHANCED OmniBox 2001! Windows 3.1 has never installed so easily."
