Big, lumbering companies try to be quirky

Tom Edison--wild and crazy guy?
Ted Mann, July 3, 2104, says giants like GE are trying to join the quirky/creative set but can't leap right in.

Sometimes they join that irritatingly named Quirky Inc and try to pass off nominal changes in their regular products as wacky innovations--viz, an air conditioner that runs on wi-fi.

Honeywell is revolutionizing the ....wait for it...powerstrip.

Another lame-oid: The Egg minder--an $80 device to count how many eggs are in the fridge.

My oh my.
