Connecting Curious Dots

On the intersection of technology, culture, and everyday life: My semi-updated space to collect and link my thoughts about interesting things I spot.

Thinking Twice about MacBook Air

Design_thinair20080115
I’ll admit, when I first saw Steve Jobs holding "the world’s thinnest laptop" I kind of wanted one, even though my own Powerbook is only 1.5 years old.  Despite the fact that the MacBook Air uses a mercury-free display, has bromide-free and PVC-free circuit boards, and uses less
packaging than past systems, this innovation doesn’t innovate on the short consumer love life of electronics. Ewaste_chrisjordan_2

Some Portraits of Mass Consumption by Chris Jordan may inspire some purchasers already toting several new gadgets to re-evaluate their impluse buys, and/or encourage designers to think twice about sustainable innovations.
