Come on Jim, I loved the last hand drier, and I hear your vacuums are a delight, but this is just lazy.
Also, you probably get one with a cleaning contract.
although where you could install 1 hand dryer for maybe every 5 sinks or so, it's a 1:1 install with this
arenas, stadia etc. or single toilet set ups.
'"We have a digital electronic motor in this which spins at 100,000rpm, three times faster than any rival's." He acknowledged that the motor could be used for many other applications, including some in the home. "But I won't tell you what."'
Think we can expect to see Dyson sex toys in shops next year.
spent the next 20 years trying to invent something equally revolutionary. He failed
Most people will continue to still use other other vacuums of course, but to some people - at least a few - you moderately improved their ability to perform a mundane household chore. That is your contribution to the world. And for all your millions, and your baubles from the Queen, you know it.
I bet he sits crying in his shower wishing he'd written a novel instead. I BET.
such an odd accent.
450mph or not, this isn't a new invention.
in crushingly boring detail on here (the fact your cuffs/wrists/hands touch the dirty, used by many, piece of rubber), don't make me do it again.....kind of did.......
He came up with a decent vacuum cleaner, sure, but the success of that was more down to marketing than engineering if you ask me. But, sure, credit where credit's due there but nothing else he has done has merited his status as a great inventor. He isn't. His vacuum cleaner is basically a premium product and is priced as such so... no great fanfare there.
He's also a businessman of dubious morals too.
...to go and make his stuff cheaper in Malaysia, in spite of making protestations about his ethics. He then claimed that he did this for business reasons to invest more overall in the company but... that turned out to be a lie.
So, to be honest, he's probably a businessman of no more dubious morals than most others. But, I hate that particular logic of business so... meh, he can keep the criticism.
...THIS James Dyson?? http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/news/article-2106379/Offshore-tax-British-engineering-champion-Sir-James-Dyson.html#axzz2K2UxusSh
Like he doesn't ever use tax loopholes or anything so pays stupid amounts
Seems alright to me
...but I don't think he does any more.
I guess the value to his brand of him paying fair share of tax isn't as much as he thought it was... Good old James Dyson eh?
Set up a direct debit
why is he wearing beige chinos in the rain?
to dry him off when he gets in
they freak me out.
i like the name.
they aren't actually that much better than normal hand dryers because you can't rub your hands together.
I'm not drying my earlobes or anything. JFC
i like rubbing my hands together. THe dyson ones remove all of that simple pleasure. They are also not very warm at all. I like a hot hand-dryer
warm air = more germs
i knew i was right in my thread where i said the guy who was drying his toothbrush under one in the staff toilet was disgusting!
sometimes you get a bit of an up-draft and your tie flies up. Pretty good.
are the ones where they have the all-in-one soap then water then air thing... nobody can be arsed to wait for the piss-weak dryer function can they?
There's too much soap, a pathetic trickle of water and a worthless drying phase.
Shame, 'cause really it should be awesome, but no-one's ever managed to actually make it work properly.
is that you can't use them for anything other than drying your hands.
So no sly gusts of hot air aimed down your top to warm you up on cold day, and no way of drying the big piss stains on your chinos.
I like turning my head upside down and giving my roots a good blast of air to freshen up my hair after a long day. You can't do that with teh airblade, I really don't think it would be at all advisable.
but they aren't that great. He works on gimmicks, the bagless thing was a gimmick. Buying and replacing bags wasn't that bad, you are meant to replace air filters and all sorts of rollers and stuff on Dysons anyway. Saves you getting dust on your hands by whipping out the old bag. Bloody expensive too, you are better off with a Henry.
The airblade is a gimmick, a paper towel is the best hand dryer. And with this latest invention, how hard is it to walk to a dryer after washing your hands? The worst sinks you can get are those all-in-ones where they squirt soap somewhere near your hand, then blast you with chilly water for far too long before a warm guff of air washes over them.
He invents problems that don't exist and creates expensive "solutions" for them. Hence he is fucking rich.
Always happy when I catch sight of them whilst I'm washing my hands
He's more than two decades old (bought before the first Dyson even existed) and as good as the day he was born.
That Dyson, or any other vacuum co, has managed to sell their tat at twice the price or more is properly insane. Genuinely don't understand this world.
from tiny places to large offices and student digs have always used Henrys. Trustworthy, reliable, good hoovers. Dyson hoovers actually need more work than you'd imagine, aside from the bag element all sorts of stuff breaks or wears out on them. Those bits are easy to replace in fairness, but it shouldn't have to happen.
every time mine breaks I buy a new one, chucking the old one in the nearest landfill on the way to the shop of course.
Just love them. It's the design I think. Yes... the design.
I couldnt see his chap, but he seemed to rumage a bit too desperately when he saw me
