Are Apple Store Managers Nationwide Getting Trained for “Union Awareness” Right Now This AM? Yes, Per CNET

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

What’s this – Apple’s is doing “Union Awareness” training at Apple Stores all over the country this Tuesday morning, November 8, 2011?

Yes. Josh Lowensohn has the story.

Well, that’s news to me. Thanks, CNET!

And who’s the prime mover of this movement? It’s San Francisco resident Cory Moll, that’s who. (I don’t know why he doesn’t get more attention around town…)

Now if I were in charge of fighting unionization at Apple, I’d start handing out free bunny-ear iPhone cases to all workers. You know, as a way to win them over.

All right, we’ll just have to wait and see how this Apple vs union fight turns out.

In the meantime, feel free to send the unionizers a message, why not?

Here’s What You Need: A Ear Rest for Your Cell Phone – Presenting ‘Earos’ by Robert Potter

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

Here’s the latest idea to get attention from our Funk Seoul Brothers and Sisters in South Korea. 

The Seoul Design Fair 2010‘s competition for “future technology and daily living” is called Design for All and it just shortlisted an ear rest for your cell phone.

It’s called Earos” and it was dreamed up by Robert Potter. Check it:

With Earos, you can order more Latisse (aka Bimatoprost)* in comfort:

It’s new, it’s you:

Will it hurt your iPhone’s reception? Don’t know.

Will it keep your valuable brain a significant distance away from your brain-warming mobile? Hell yes.

Maybe you could use this at home or something.


*Speaking of which, here are some of the possible side effects of listening to Brooke Shields about what to do with your eyelid hair. Wow:

  • May cause blurred vision.
  • May cause eyelid redness.
  • May permanently darken eyelashes.
  • May cause eye discomfort.
  • May eventually cause permanent darkening of the iris to brown.
  • May cause a temporary burning sensation during use.
  • May cause thickening of the eyelashes.
  • It may cause unexpected growth of hair if applied inappropriately, on the cheek, for example.
  • It may cause infection if the one-time applicators which come with the genuine product are reused.
  • Lashes may grow so long that they become ingrown and scratch the cornea.
  • May cause darkening of the eyelid or of the area beneath the eye.

On November 19, 2007 the FDA issued a warning during the seizure of a bimatoprost-containing cosmetic. The warning stated that “the extra dose of bimatoprost may decrease the prescription drug’s effectiveness. Damage to the optic nerve may lead to decreased vision and possibly blindness.”

But aside from that….
