Annals of advertising

Another pressing problem has been forever solved by James Dyson, inventor of groovy-looking vacuum cleaners (which do not actually clean vacuums?) and hand-driers. His company’s new product is a fan:
The Dyson Air Multiplier™ fan works very differently to conventional fans. It uses Air Multiplier™ technology to draw in air and amplify it 15 times, producing an uninterrupted stream of smooth air. With no blades or grill, it’s safe, easy to clean and doesn’t cause unpleasant buffeting.
I don’t know about you, but I have suffered numerous bouts of unpleasant buffeting, in dubious Chinese restaurants and hotels with substandard breakfasting materials. I must admit that I can’t see how such gastronomic frustration was caused by old-fashioned fans, but who am I to argue with an Air Multiplier™?
Meantime, you will soon be able to drink Coke in smaller cans. Says a Cokesperson:
Our new sleek mini can supports the idea of moderation and offers people yet another way to enjoy their favorite Coca-Cola beverage.
I am relieved that it “supports” only the idea of moderation, because the reality is really not tasty enough.
