Top 10 off switches

We've compiled a list of our favorite off switches along with gratuitous shots of them.

In the last 10 years, the off switch has seen something of a decline, being replaced by its trendier sibling, the standby button. But we miss good old offy--his sturdy construction and good humor were a welcome break from the monotony of day-to-day life.

There's good news though. With the environmentalists throwing a fit pretty much every couple of hours about how much carbon we're blowing out of our electronic bottoms, trendy standby is becoming a technological leper.

Does this mean we'll see the glorious return of our old friend? Whatever happens, it will be years before all these devices with vulgar standby buttons are purged from existence. In the meantime, we've compiled a list of our favorite off switches along with gratuitous shots of them. Click here for a trip down memory lane.
