Yesterday I was having a random conversation with someone in who mentioned that he noticed, during an outage, that all our LEDs blinked in sync, and realized, "wow, someone had to have made this work on purpose." It was a good feeling. Sometimes the OCD pays off.
I think this is the sort of "I can tell someone actually paid attention here" that makes people like Apple products. Admittedly, it works better in cases where it's a little more useful than LEDs blinking in sync, but oh well. Baby steps!
