The USB Chainsaw Is Not Real But a Promotion Idea



Drat. Turns out the USB chainsaw I linked to the other day is not real. Instead it is a promotional idea that seeks to call attention to the wastefulness of printers. The site has now changed into the Papercut site and instead of ordering a USB chainsaw, you can download a program that makes the sound of a chainsaw every time you use your printer.

I guess the idea is to remind you that you are killing trees when you print.

    Trees are like a farm crop.
    If people don’t use paper, they will not plant more trees to make more paper…
    thus resulting in less trees(tree loss from: fire, beetle/bug kills, disease, storms, etc)

    I see/hear many office pranks in the future of this sound.
