He didn't get where he is today by stealing somebody else's catchphrase.

Rubberwhere/Rubbertear

When a company states that they've designed an object to withstand the wear and tear of life, they should be careful what they're saying. I once purchase one of these:

Corsair 1GB USB Memory Stick

But now, it looks like this:

Memory Stick
A memory stick, in the most literal sense of the phrase.

It got that way in 3 simple steps:

1) Rubber cap came loose and eventually got lost.
2) The rubber ring that attaches the device to a key-ring/lanyard wasn't thick enough and got ripped.
3) The sealant that kept that USB port and chip inside it's rubber housing came unstuck, resulting in the device working loose.

Perhaps I should be a product tester for anything that claims "durability". Funnily enough, it still works - as long I don't put it near anything dusty, wet, humid, hot, with an electrical charge or with a beak.
