An Open Letter Regarding Innovation To The Household Goods Manufacturers of America

Dear Household Goods Manufacturers of America,

I have a simple request for you all: stop innovating. When it comes to things like home storage or cleaning supplies, I just need something that works and does its job. I don't need an ironing board that can double as a dining table or a lawn mower that also feeds the dog. My request is backed by two anecdotes with regards to plastic storage bins and vacuum cleaners.
