Take breakfast self-portraits with this selfie cereal spoon - CNET. In case you needed more evidence that our civilization is doomed; I give you the selfie spoon, which has a spoon attached to the end of a selfie stick so you can photograph yourself eating. I can think of no product I have seen in a long time that has less redeeming social value; and, I can think of no way to unsee this after I have seen it. So, since misery loves company, you now get to spend the rest of your day thinking about people taking selfies of themselves eating breakfast. Enjoy.
tir Kinetic Desk M1 review: The smartest desk $2,990 can buy | PCWorld. And, in the Wednesday edition of "Are you Kidding Me?", I give you a desk that annoys you with exercise tips, and raises up and down electronically. Oh, and it costs $3,000. It does not surprise me that this woman loves this desk, since she also likes and owns the iPhone. If you want to know why this country is going to Hell in a handbasket, look no further than the $3,000 desk. Jeez.
Microsoft Offers Free Download Of %u201CStart Me Up%u201D To Celebrate 20 Years Of Windows 95 | TechCrunch. How appropriate that Microsoft honored the 20th anniversary of Windows 95 with a free download of a Rolling Stones song. These guys look old enough to have stood in line at Midnight on August 24th, 1995, like I did. We were all a lot younger then. The box of floppies was the best thing since sliced bread, and we all stayed up all night loading floppies into our machines to get the graphical goodness. No wonder we don't want to get rid of our Start buttons. They have been our computer friend for over 20 years. Ouch. In the words of Prufrock: "I grow old. I grow old. I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled".
Death of LOL no laughing matter - IOL SciTech. I was distressed to read that the use of LOL is dying out among the young. Laughter is the best medecine, and, on Twitter, it needs to be efficient. So, pardon me if I keep using LOL as a symbol of the fact that we all need to laugh more, and worry less. Laugh on.
pcjs.org | /devices/pc/machine/5160/cga/256kb/win101/. In the Eighties, the IBM PC XT was the first DOS computer that most of us used. It was text based, had limited memory and storage (the first ones had dual floppy drives, one of which was the operating system), and were used for rudimentary word processing tasks by lawyers. Later on, batch programs designed to start with the system created a menu based system that ran programs when you selected a number. Now, children, you too can see what we had to put up with back then. Come with me into the days of yesteryear. Step into my time machine.
