New Year

Ahh the new year.. We are crashing headlong into all sorts of stuff I forgot I was supposed to do..

I still had time this morning to fiddle on the computer. This video cracks me up. Note that it is from The Onion and is completely false, but seems like it is real.

Quite brilliant.

Don't you love the quote about "people who still use keyboards are standing in the way of human progress" ?

BTW, Thanks for cheering Roger up!

I wasn't impressed by it. I'm sure I can type much faster with my keyboard than with that wheel.

And have you heard of the new laptops that come scented? Just don't use them outside too much or you won't be able to smell them for long ;-)

I like the line "Everything you need is just a few hundred clicks away" and the way you have to scroll over to the 4th choice to get a capital letter. It's just too silly.

Susie, have you made a laptop cozy yet?

I googled and there is such a thing, it turns out: http://www.gadgetcozies.com/

Rob- Cozies are all the rage! Didn't you know? Some funny ones I've seen are a Nintendo game cube one that is knit just exactly like the gamecube.

Ice cube cozies won the Cozies With Irony contest at Craftster:

Hahaha this is too funny. Many of my co-workers are mac fan, however the programs we use for work require we use a lots of keyboard short cuts... I'm sure some of them are still going to buy this wheel thing, but I will just stick to my keyboard one.

DInDin- This video only seems like it is real. We have this parody news site called The Onion and they do these funny stories that seem like real news.
