Terrible name, in fact, so bad that Steve Jobs might not even bother sending out his lawyerbots with a cease-and-desist order.

But that's just my opinion.

It reminds me of something I just had to have when I saw it years ago. It was a combo sit-up-and-read-in-bed hard-backed cushion with a heater/massager and a little reading lamp on the top (NOT boj-approved). Every time you moved the whatever-it-was-called the reading light somehow came unscrewed and fell over. And it was one more thing to plug in somewhere everywhere I took it. My $75 joy became a pain quickly...and now someone at or from the Salvation Army is probably cursing it somewhere.

It was the first time I palpably realized that with most products there is a definite disconnect between the joy you imagine upon purchase and the joy that is actually doled out. Sometimes it's better just to dream, in other words. ;)
