Don't you think that too? Just your average Joe North American - sitting in the living room, killing another evening watching 4+ hours of TV thinking to yourself: "what a stupid coffee table...What has it EVER done for me?"
Then it dawned on me - tables and desks are just plain lazy.
Take THAT you lazy coffee table.
I wanted to thank Mr Bill for this inspiring quote:
"It can be in every desk," Gates said. "It can be in every table, it can be in every whiteboard, every mirror. Give us a 5- to 10-year time frame and we will wonder why our tables used to just sit there and not do anything for us."
