I want one of those

There is no doubt that I do not need this, but I really, really, really want it.

Minor aside to Neil: neither the state nor any form redistributive politics would, could or ever will produce this kind of meaningless and trivial product. That is why life would be so stiflingly boring if you were in charge.

I may not be a real techno-junkie, but I agree, I must have one for the office. It would drive my tech-addicted boss up the wall just knowing not ten yards from his office was a gadget better than anything he had.

And if I was a real bastard I'd wait until he bought himself one then send mine back for a refund.

Then again, I might keep it. It looks a lot easier to clean fag ash and sarnie crumbs out of that keyboard than mine.

RM,

"It looks a lot easier to clean fag ash and sarnie crumbs out of that keyboard than mine."

[Slaps head]. I was wrong. I do, in fact, need this.

I am forcibly reminded of the occasion when I knocked an entire glass of (very good) red wine into the keyboard of Lady P-G's delightful little Mac. It took a while for the bruises to subside.

Aw, come on, PG: the state, or at least the state/church nexus, introduced witch trials; into the pond with 'em and see whether they float. Not boring.

Lord you boys *are* behind the times, aren't you.

ninme,

That is just bluster coming from you.

We all know that you just sit in your secret underground bunker, on an enormous and elaborately carved chair (with a cheetah chained at your feet) barking commands at a cohort of scantily clad male models who jump on the keys of an enormous keyboard set into the floor of your throne room.

I expect that the Apple-C and Apple-V flagstones must be in need of replacing as well by now....

I bet before you had a computer you wanted toys like a poppeteer and one of the things that gets bobbles off synthetic jumpers.

ninme considers what rude words contain the letters C and V then decides it's not worth the mental effort
