The Green Silence Shoe From Brooks Running: Jubbling, yes. Something Your Brother Releases In Your Room To Chase You Out, maybe.

The Green Silence from Brooks Running
The name is a little cheesy but the shoe is definitely Jubbling. The Green Silence from Brooks Running is sustainably built from recycled and biodegradable materials. Here is the breakdown:

  • BioMoGo, the world’s first-ever biodegradable midsole for running shoes
  • 75% of the shoe’s materials are post-consumer recycled
  • Biodegradable insole and collar foams
  • Laces, gillies, and reinforced webbing are 100% post-consumer recycled
  • Water-based adhesives are used throughout
  • All dyes and colorants are non-toxic
  • Packaging is 100% post-consumer recycled

According to Brooks Running, The Green Silence requires “half as many parts” while achieving its overall goal of being a competitive running shoe. I wish Brooks Running would’ve contacted me prior to the shoe’s release because “The Green Silence” just isn’t cutting it. Maybe “The Green Assassin” or the “The Footprint Zero” would’ve been better name choices.[Brooks Running]

Jubbling @ Microsoft: Would You Like “Up-Flush” To Be Your Default Application?

Microsoft Flush InstructionsThe success of Microsoft’s new operating system, Windows 7, pales in comparison to the success they’ve found by Jubbling. Atleast in my eyes. And Microsoft has found a “sweet spot” with us by turning the bathroom experience into a Jubbling event. Yeah, automatically turning on/off the lights as you enter/leave a bathroom is neat but so 2004 and we say BFD to the automatic faucets. What did Microsoft do to take the Jubbling to an 11? They gave toilet users a choice to decide if they want to Up-flush or Down-flush depending on their output and they’ve provided a seat where you can make your decision. “Up” is for liquid waste and flushes with less water and “Down” is for chunky and uses the full tank. Either choice is Jubbling and well beyond the normal office recycling and use of biodegradable flatware. I could’ve spent an hour in the bathroom testing out the technology and taking notes but 54 minutes was enough.

Keep up the good work Microsoft. You’ve got one less hater out there thanks to your Jubbling efforts.
