Well if no one else will post something, I might as well keep going. So earlier this week I elevated my nerd alert status from a comfortable yellow Mustard to a red and gooey Cow Blood color. I got myself one of those Sidekick dealies from T-Mobile. How could I resist a device with a color screen, email, web browsing, instant messaging and a cell phone for 20 friggin dollars?
Sure it's like talking into a bar of soap, but who cares. As far as I'm concerned it payed for itself allowing me to read web comics and IM a coworker during that first long boring meeting. Jon over at goats has had one of these things for a very long time, and does all sorts of neat things with it like update his site, download pornography, and shear sheep (often simultaneously).
Just a word of warning: friends and family may not want to be seen near you in public when you pull it out and start typing with your thumbs.
