The most expensive things at Amazon

nrrd on #memepool and I were looking up some expensive things on Amazon, and I felt a blog post coming on, so here you have it: the most expensive things in every Amazon category.

Good shopping day

I’ve been off work all week, and while I had a giant pile of things to get done, I’ve mostly ignored it. Part of that was because I managed to come down with a cold and exhibit poor judgment — Candice and I were craving Starbucks at 10 pm one night and we forgot to […]

Yay, my phone works now, in both directions! And I’ve got my Bluetooth headset and voice dialing working, which is neat — unlike my previous phone, voice control on the RAZR doesn’t require any training, it just understands.

House of Staples: old phonecam pics
