    Had to laugh when I heard Steve Jobs describing the iPad as “It’s like holding the Internet in your hand!!”

    Yet more classic Jen: “So what does IT actually stand for?”

    Why such tiny, expensive batteries? Throw some D cells in there and it’ll run for months.

    Silly. This is what the internet really looks like:

    I know how to make the internet. Obtain a box and insert a cat into it. Instant internet!

    Why not just use a flasing LED from Radio Shack? They are $2 and run on 3V, so they only need one battery.

    However, as we all know, the internet is actually made of cats…

    Just be careful not to type “google” into Google. That’ll break the Internet too. Seriously. Not even just to see what happens. Don’t do it.

    Do they include the step to have it demagnetized by the “Hawk”?

    It’s so light!

      heh heh… I miss Denholm though.

      “You wouldn’t shoot a Policeman and then steal his helmet. You wouldn’t go to the toilet in his helmet, and then send it to the Policeman’s grieving widow, and then steal it again. Downloading films is stealing; if you do it you WILL face the consequences!”

      How ludicrous could you get and still convince a techyphobe of something like this? Most likely a single structure somewhere with a massive off switch, at the very least!

    When the NY City Library system’s Science, Industry and Business branch (SIBL) first opened over a decade ago, its public network access room was still an unusual enough concept to draw a significant amount of attention. Fairly quickly, the staff noticed that there was a class of library visitor who was coming through because they had heard about the Internet and just wanted to know what all the buzz was about. The library quickly solved this by starting a series of introductory classes in using the resources made available, from the web to proprietary databases. But, as one librarian was heard to observe: “You know, if we just mounted a big cable on the wall with a complicated-looking device in the middle of it and labeled it appropriately, many of these people would go away perfectly happy, since they could say they had Seen The Internet. Think of all the training time we’d save.”
