Gadget Value

What a wonderful phrase:  “Gadget value.”  I just stumbled upon it in an old history text book and instantly fell in love with the term . . .

Gadget Value is the intrinsic interest a mechanism generates totally separate from it’s use. It’s why we love cars, trains and any other mechanism.

Cable has massive Gadget Value, and even though I don’t have a statistic to support that claim, I’m pretty sure it’s true.

Furthermore, I suspect that’s why people have been so responsive to it.  Gadget Value is important.
