o-bservation

Nowadays, everything cool is prefixed with i-.

Five years ago, everything was e-.

Look for the next wave to be o-.

You heard it here first.

Actually, having given it a 2nd thought, I think the o is so "tutu" Not at all obsolete.

Just seen your comment on the flying monkeys. Many thanks for stopping. Like I commented on there, we are on about the same subject: 'coolness'. Perhaps 'Tutu' should preceed everything:
Tutu-Pod;
Tutu-Mac;
Tutu-Merc
etc

Oh. My. Goodness.
Now *where* did you come across this?!

TFM:
That's an idea :-D
I wonder if The Man knew of this when he titled his album "Tutu". (Twenty years after The Birth of the Tutu...)
