I may be a bit distracted and consumed by my moving chores at the moment, but not so distracted that I can't take a moment to offer a few thoughts on Sunday's football game. Being a Steelers fan, I'm somewhat disappointed that they had to win their fifth title that way, in a poorly played game with bad officiating and all. Still, that Randle-El pass to Ward was something to see, and that Parker run wasn't so bad either. Now, having dealt with the actual game, let's just get right down to what everyone has really been talking about for the past two days:

Some had expected Gillette to bring out a four-bladed razor, perhaps a self-lubricating one. Instead, it jumped to five blades, or six including the trimmer, and will sell Fusion-branded shaving gels and after shave balm.

"There was never a plan to go to four," he said. said Peter Hoffman, president of Gillette's blades and razors business, who said Fusion was in the development pipeline for several years.

Gillette, which also makes Duracell batteries, said in a meeting with analysts and reporters in New York that Fusion's battery-powered version has a microchip that makes an indicator light turn on to warn users when the battery is running down.

I see that there is already a successor of the Fusion from a European company; Quintippio has 15 extra large blades. Not so good on the skin though... They say you need NIVEA for that!

I concur with the outcome of the game (also being a Steelers fan). But I wonder when this business will cease, regarding the number of blades on a razor increasing. Surely there are diminishing returns?
