Got a new scanner today which is why this Saturday page is being posted on Sunday… the new scanner has a bright green "on/off" light.  I don't remember exactly when this symbol started showing up on just about everything, it certainly didn't exist when I was a kid, and even my first computer's on/off didn't use this…. now it is everywhere.  Ubiquitous that's what it is, why?


  1. As far as symbols go, I think it's a good one. The interrupted circle makes sense.
    Hope you enjoy your new scanner. I use my scanner more than my printer.

  2. Oh yes Pamo, I wear out the scanner long before the printer… the combo is cheaper than buying them separately…so out goes the perfectly fine printer. I got this one, because it uses the same ink as my old one.
