Interactive Thursday

I thought the first Interactive Thursday I did went really well and thanks to everyone who participated! I figured I would keep going... so Here it is..

Topic of the Week:

List products/things/anything that are brand names that we have accepted as their name.


Examples:
Kleenex = facial tissue
Scotch Tape = tape

Band aid = adhesive strip
Frisbee = flying disk

Xerox = photo copy machine

Post It Notes= sticky paper

Googling = searching something on the web




Why do we as a society accept things like this?


List some others I haven't mentioned.


Opinions! Comments! Answers! Good topic? Bad?

Write away!

It reminds me of how my grandma used to always call all refrigerators "Fridgedaires".

It's different where I live now then where I grew up, but here some people call all sodas "Coke."

Oh yeah, Coke is a big one in the south. My relatives in the midwest call it "pop". Nope, here any kind of soda is a "coke".
