The bent paperclip.Redesigned.

Let’s imagine that we are in the year 2146 and an archaeology team has just found, during an excavation in the outskirts of San Francisco, something that looks vaguely like a paper clip, but not quite.

They have spent six days trying to figure out its use, and they don’t know yet what exactly is it.

Some say that it may have been a ritual tool for the passage to adolescence.
Others say that it was a kind of jewelry ornament used by an urban tribe that originated in the Cupertino area in the early 21st century.
Still another theory affirms that considering the precision, which was put on making it, it must be have been part of a medical device.

Because in 2146 mobile phone implants have become commonplace, nobody knows anymore what a nano SIM card is, let alone a nano SIM card ejector.

But back in the present we know that the Apple nano SIM card ejector was made in China, and its design probably based on a bent paper clip like those that everyone have used alt least once to reset a router, or force-eject a stuck DVD from a DVD player.

While I do understand the importance of the experience, and the care and resources that has gone into making that little thing, I still cannot understand why people is actually paying for the ejectors when the only thing you need is to bend a paper clip.
