The Bach on the Trees

This has been around for a while, but as I haven’t been posting for a long while, it has has to wait until now.

Anyway, whoever came up with this is an absolute genius. On a par with the bloke (or laydee) who had the Cadbury’s drumming gorilla idea. But it makes me wonder if our most brilliant minds of the generation are being siphoned off into making us buy stuff, and not being put to work on some awesome way to eradicate malaria, AIDS and get the whole world drinking clean water. I read somewhere recently (TIME, I think it was. Can’t be bothered to look it up) of a young programmer who was the project manager of the first team to develop the algorithms needed to make the targeted ads that made Facebook so rich, who left and complained that the cleverest maths brains were being wasted making people click things. Shame

Still, if this phone was available in this country and I had the disposable income to drop, I’d definitely buy one. And this advert would have made me do it.
