WIRELESS WORLD WANTED
I did some much-delayed office organizing and rearranging this weekend and have come to the conclusion that we're a long, long, loooong way from a wireless world. Despite pruning, my desk and floor still look like snakepits. My wireless Internet connection doesn't require a cord to my computer, but it still clutters my desktop with five cords to supply power and network connections.
As a design-catalog addict, I've noticed that they almost never show the cords on lamps. (See here and here). The lamps look sleeker and more flexible without cords but, alas, electricity does not just come out of the air. You still need a wire.
