USB Typewriter, anyone? And all for the low, low price of $800! Srsly. That’s an $800 keyboard. $800. Good gravy, that’s more than the iPad I’d plug it into! But it’s still pretty. Seen on @treelobsters twitter feed.

Patient Zero Rocks!

Seen in the Star Tribune by Kristin Tillotson: Sometimes, you feel a little tingle of anticipation when your cellphone rings. What if it happened every time?

More randomness.

I had a lovely dinner with friends last night – London Broil, Yukon Potatoes and Tossed Salad with Bleu Cheese dressing – yummy!  Good food, good company.  ~~~~~ Is your Droid sucking all of your battery up in mere hours?  No!  Bad Droid!  I installed the Advanced Task Killer for Android on my HTC Incredible.  …
