Who amongst us does not use a search engine at least once per day? I did not really think about it much until today, however I would hazard a guess that every day I use the Internet I search for something at least one time.
So when a news feed this morning informed me that Nokia has developed a bike charger aimed at mobile phones and the first two sites I visited did not have pictures (the Reuters and PC World pages only had text) I opened up a search engine typed in "nokia bike charger."
Proving our world is dominated by the automobile, the search engine naturally thought I had mistyped and wanted to correct me . . . see below.
No my search engine friend, I did not mean "nokia car charger." Being a naturally curious fellow I wondered how other search engines would perform. Turns out 2 out of 3 subscribe to the automobile Matrix . . .
If inquiring minds want to know, Google and Ask both questioned my intentions and Bing did not question me. I did eventually fine a decent picture via the site ElectricPig.co.uk. The picture does not actually show very much, but here you have it for now:
The photos do not reveal the guts of the device but you just have to think that it is a dynamo hub of some sort. I have my own hairbrained thoughts on generating energy that I'll share in a future post. As a hint, my idea will most definitely confuse search engines =)
