Question of the day

Our last question asked: What piece of equipment will be used on average 85 times per March Madness game and about 6,000 times before a NCAA basketball champion is crowned, and what is its official name? That would be the referee's whistle, which is known as the Fox 40 or Fox 40 Classic.

Congratulations to Craig Pittman of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to answer that question! Honorable mentions belong to Thomas FeyerBrian SmithMarilyn ParelKen Walker (who adds that it was "so named because inventor Ron Foxcroft was 40 when it was first released"), and Hollywood Highlands for also getting that exactly right.

As for today's question, here it is: After posting an image he found on Google Patents, a tech writer found himself unexpectedly crowned worldwide as an "expert" on what invention? (And do you agree with his assessment on how it should be used?)
