My mother is an amazing woman: She has raised 5 children who have, under her tutelage, cultivated skills of exploration, creativity, and ingenuity.  We have, in return, assisted her in becoming a part of the digital age (and I’m not talking about deep entrenchment in social media technology or high tech… I’m talking about being able to upload photos via picasa and share them in an email).

of T-Shirts and Mugs

A WordPress Mug here… and a Twitter TShirt there… online shopping is far too easy… makes my money go bye bye here… and there… and everywhere…

*sigh*

Sometimes I have to ask myself the hard questions… do these items have an amazingly positive ROI?

DIE CORPORATE MIND-SLAVE WITH YOUR EVIL CORP-SPEAK JARGON!

Whew.  Better now.

Future State of Communication

I was passed this link the other day and was blown away with the concept.  In fact, I was more excited about this non-existent product than I was when I first got my snazzy new iPhone.

Take a look:

A very nice and pleasing soundtrack to boot! If Nokia can come up with even half of what this is… that would be amazing.
