My phone plays music,
And runs hundreds of fun apps...
I wish I had friends.
If you're not tuned in to the right interweb stations, you may never know that this week is the week of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), at which all of the major and minor technology companies reveal their plans for the upcoming future. What sort of things can we look forward to? TVs that are less than an inch thick. Memory cards that wirelessly transmit pictures and videos to your computer and/or YouTube. Watch phones.
In other words, we can look forward to having our childhood fantasies come true. A watch phone? Yes!
And we're just a few hours into this year's CES. Egads!
If you're not interested in a watch phone, perhaps a Hello Kitty touchscreen cellphone is more to your liking... Can you say
Anywho, these are the times that the future, as it was told to us as youngsters, seems almost possible. Any day now, I expect the announcement of the electric flying car. I've been holding my breath for a long time now. It would be nice to exhale again.
A quick addendum: Amazon.com is offering for sale one Life-Span Fitness Vibration Plate. If you want to shake, shake, shake your way to a trim and lean you, act now!
Please note that customers that purchased the Life-Span Fitness Vibration Plate (really!) also purchased the Cloud b Twilight Constellation Night Light. That seems appropriate.
I should be off. I need to refresh Gizmodo.com a few times to make sure I haven't missed any CES news.
Before I depart, here's Today's Joke:
Porn Moguls Ask Congress For Help
Porn moguls Larry Flynt and Joe Francis are appealing to the U.S. Congress to grant the adult entertainment industry a $5 billion bail out - because it is suffering from the global economic meltdown just as much as others.
Hustler magazine entrepreneur Flynt claims adult DVD sales have plummeted in the last 12 months, with figures down 22 per cent from 2007.
Flynt warned that if Congress did not act quickly, the US adult entertainment industry could collapse, leaving Americans no other choice but to purchase porn made overseas.
"Do we want the high school boys and truck-drivers of America looking at Chinese tits? We don't know what they're made of. They could be filled with melamine and Communism. It's time for the federal government to stuff some money into the g-strings of the adult entertainment industry before we have no other options besides watching The Erotic Adventures of Mao ZeDong."
