Where Were You Hundreds Of Birthdays Ago Tape Scissors?

It's obvious why these brilliant scissors with a built-in tape dispenser aren't available in every office supply store. They want you to have to buy both products separately -- increasing the store's profits while you sit at home fumbling your way through another botched attempt at wrapping gifts.

It's a bigger crime against consumers than Apple's alleged e-book price fixing, but we doubt the courts will be filing an antitrust lawsuit anytime soon. So just go buy a pair here for $US10 and be thankful the next time you need to wrap a present. And remember, sometimes you have to lose the occasional battle to win the war.
