Unfortunately, these are mostly electronics products. Where are the shoe laces that never untie and the cat litter boxes that never need cleaning?

I've got those shoe laces that never untie! they are the best thing that I have ever owned ( ok, that might be an overstatement, but they're awesome ). They come standard issue in Solomon shoes. They call the system "Quickfit asymmetrical" lacing system. It's sad that the only reason we still tie our shoes is because that's just what we've always done, and velcro is just too uncool!

here is the shoe, I'm still looking for a better picture to the lacing system - the shoes

I have not tied my sneakers in years, well I tie them after I buy them from the store. I just slip my feet in. I do not need that tight feeling of my blood being cut off.

And I think the list is missing Ajax In Action. Should be up there in the top 10 along with Head First Patterns.
