A solution to a problem that really doesn’t exist

It’s a slow day today so we’re going to venture into more general tech territory.

Microsoft last week unveiled InstaLoad, a technology that “enable users to insert batteries into a device in either + or – direction and the device simply works. Users do not have to search for a hard to read diagram to determine how to insert the batteries.

Really Microsoft? This is such a big problem that you have to waste valuable time and resources to develop such a technology?

How hard is it to read the polarity diagram on the back of mouse.

Wonder how much of a premium will Microsoft put in devices with InstaLoad tech in them.

What do you think? Are battery polarities such an issue that someone has to come up with this? We say, no thank you.
