Go, Gadget, Go!!
OK, in case I've never mentioned it, I like gadgets.
Sadly, people who like gadgets should be people who can actually afford to buy them. Which, generally, I'm not. That being said, I still manage to do okay.
Take my new Christmas gift from my wife, for instance. It's a new Palm. The name of it is the T/X for anyone who cares, though I don't think it's truly important for the purposes of this story.
Now, it's all loaded with Bluetooth and Wi-fi, so I can hook into my home internet connection.
Like I'm doing now.
The even *neater* thing is that it came with a nifty wireless keyboard. It's a cool little unit that unfolds into a pretty much fullsize keyboard. I just lay my Palm into it, and start typing. It communicates by infrared.
When I first saw that my Palm came with a keyboard, I was kind of, "Gee, that's nice, maybe I'll use it once in a while."
However, now that I'm using it, (and did I mention that I'm actually using it right now?), I'm all, "Holy crap this is cool! I'll be using this thing ALL the time!!"
It's like having a micro-laptop or something. It can come with me anywhere. Even into the washroom!
(And did I mention where I'm typing this post? Let's just say I feel like a king.)
