don’t like to write in themes per se really. Case in point, yesterday I pointed out a new patent filed by Wal-mart for a self driving shopping cart. But, today I just couldn’t pass this one up either. I suppose, there is some greater environmental “save the Earth” effort behind this that will be told one day, but I’m waiting, for now.
Seems Apple, has filed a patent for ….wait for it…. a PAPER BAG. Yes, a paper bag. Ok, it has handles so I guess my snarky attitude is unfounded. It’s composed of “a high proportion of recycled material”. Furthermore, the handles will be “delightful” by being “formed entirely of paper fibre yarn knitted in an 8-stitch circular knit pattern”.
Well, now we’re talking!
Look, I opt for the paper bags at grocery stores all the time and many times, those bags have handles! It’s a sacrifice that I’ve been willing to make from time to time. Paper bags are biodegradable in like days compared to plastic. Schlepping groceries around with course, scratchy, rough to-the-touch paper bags was one of my martyr-like contributions to society. OH the humanity!
A patent from Apple. And you’d have thought it was for some sort of phone or electronic thingy! Pffft. Whatevs.
The iBag 1. Just wait for all of the leaked pictures and rumors about the iBag 2.
