All Gadgets are black

Posted on: May 7, 2006

Do you remember Henry Ford’s quote “You can paint it any color, so long as it’s black” At first all autos were black. Technological gadgets are the same point as automobile business were. Most of gadgets, laptops, laptop bags are now black. But, they all will be coloured next years.


We are participating many meeting with laptops, we are surfing at Starbucks with our laptops. We have more and more social interaction with laptops. Something to express our personality looks to be hot. May be we’ll be used to “fashion of laptop covers” term.


Today, they are lots of customization tool (stickers, covers, bag). But, they are limited to small initiative at product level. They are huge possibilities to combine fashion and expressing ourselves with technology at business model. Hey, what about starting next accessorize store.

just a little correction, which although the quote is well known it wasn’t actually true from the start. henry ford couln’t make his cars black until one year into his production as the black paint took to long to dry, and volume and time were more importnat so the quickest paints he could use for over 12 months were a dirty blue a pea green and a strange shade of red, although he did want black and felt it was a much better colour for mass production and consumption he had to make them these colours untill he could get the black paint made to the same standard as the coloured paint whioch he sourced from china i believe.
