Dyson bladeless fan

I saw the recent Dyson bladeless fan: amazing! The products from this company have great quality. They are (very) expensive but they are worth all their pennies. With this fan, they are also great technically.

Here is Sir James Dyson explaining his bladeless fan.

And there is also the Airblade, also from Dyson. You've seen it in airport restrooms and luxury hotels. It dries your hands, for real, and fast.

Swiss high value assets

Garbage plastic bags are under high surveillance in Switzerland. Here, sold at the Post Office, these are the official garbage bags you HAVE to use if you live in Zurich or risk a heavy penalty.

There is a special video camera set just to monitor them. I really wonder if this is cost efficient :-) ... Ah, I forgot the penalty can finance the camera, the recording, the monitoring, the identification, the pursuit and of course the penalty collection.
