  1. James,

    I’m shocked that you overlooked one of the most important tech gadgets to come along….

    The ‘Hello Kitty Electronic Toilet Paper Dispenser’.

    The great thing about it is that it’s programmable!

    You can set it to dispense exactly how many sheets you want at a time….what a time-saver and paper-saver too!!!!

    ;-)

    Check out the gory details at:

  2. Does the stainless steel wallet shield your credit cards from magnetic fields? That would be a selling point. Then everyone would want to steel their wallet.

  3. a few coworkers had thinkgeek’s paper catalog. The USB humping dog looked cool.
