Top 10s are usually made up of things people like – music, restaurants, movies, whatever.

Web searches are different.

People search for nasty stuff as well as good things (it doesn’t of course make them nasty people, that’s a different subject).

But at least Nos. 7 – 10 in my web search Top 10 were things, people or topics I could relate to positively.

The Eaga Showersmart – a FREE device sent to every household in the UK claiming to save energy when you shower – is different.

Some of the phrases people searched for to find out about the Showersmart suggest I’m not alone in feeling less than positive about this…thing.

how does an eaga showersmart actually work?

I blogged three times about this pointless product – first under the title How not to save the planet at public expense, then The right way to save the planet (my proposal for an infinitely superior product called the Desprat BathDumb), then finally under the obscure heading Mythical things and iguanas (not obscure when you read it and coincidentally the only one of the posts featuring in this select Top 10 making a direct allusion to music – Dory Previn fans will know what I mean).

And now six months after Eaga made me cross with the dreaded Showersmart, and in a maybe prescient move, “giant building company” Carillion is bidding to take them over.  Good luck guys.

Tomorrow – into the top half of this particular chart countdown with a heart-warming tale of positive psychological reinforcement.
