    FYI GHDs aren't the be all and end all when it comes to hair straighteners. You are just paying for the name.

    Xerox is another one someone came up with. That's no an item that has become known as . Its a photocopier.
    "I need to Xerox that". Dinnae think so.

    Any video call is now a 'FaceTime' or a 'Skype'.
    Every search on the internet is a 'Google'.
    Any image that's been edited is now 'Photoshopped', even if it's just been cropped in Microsoft Paint.
    When MP3 players were still relevant, most of them were referred to as 'iPods'.

    Rollerblade was a brand name for roller skates. Velcro, Taser, Superglue, Biro, Portaloo, YoYo and AirMiles all started off as brand names too.

    Not used by everyone but Cashline (in Scotland) and Bank Machine (in Northern Ireland) are pretty commonly used regardless of the ATM supplier.

    Is it? I've never heard of a Roller Blade brand.

    If anything, when I was younger, they were probably known as Bauer's.

    I never said it wasn't. His post should have said "rollerblades for inline skates", no rollerskates.

    As i said i was being pedantic. As a child of the 70's, it was rollerskates.
