A short request to the PR folk out there. Please don’t send us any more press releases relating to:
a) Gadget cases. Have you any idea at all just how AWFUL these things are? What, they keep your handheld warm, cosy, safe and BORING??
b) iPhone stands. Who cares? No really.
c) Plastic screen protectors for cell phones. Mind numbingly dreary.
d) iPod docks. Ditto. Unless they’re nuclear powered and come with a signed copy of The Audacity of Pope.
e) Cutesy USB flash drives. Double Ditto. We’ll look at the ones with an integrated pancake maker, but that’s it.
f) Anything really boring that you’ve decided will sound better with Xmas in front of the name. Like The Xmas Furby. Or similar.
We know you’ve got a job to do, life is difficult and clients are demanding pigs. But do have a heart. Please.
