Sitting in Michael's Lap
Hehe ... a cute little trackball with cool little lights that change color ... hey, what can I say, Mike and I are magpies when it comes to anything that shines ... *shrug*
But the funniest thing about this little gadget was the "propaganda" printed on the back of it -- Mike and I nearly veered off the highway laughing while reading it on the way home from the store:
"The Crystal Trackball features an illuminated center globe that gives off a radiant red hue when in use and a green hue when you click the buttons. (Oooh ... aaahhh) This visual special effect (huh?) is a great compliment to the many other features of the Crystal Trackball,like it's user-friendly adaptability for right or left hand (yawn), 3 micro switched buttons with approximately one million cycle lifetime (oh, YAY!), and a tracking speed of 500 mm per second (whoopee!), plus many more (have yet to find the "many more," but I'm still looking ...). Oh yes, the Crystal Trackball saves space as well! In that it is about 4X the size of a normal mouse???)
Sigh. I was waiting for the infomercial announcer to jump in with "But wait, there's more!" and say that there's a slicer/dicer/potato peeler that comes with this AMAZING PRODUCT, along with a FREE copy of the "Cabbage for Colon Health" cookbook ... and it ALL can be YOURS for the LOW, LOW price of $19.99 (+5.99 S&H) ...
I mean hey, I LIKE the thing, but they really need to hire someone more qualified to run their marketing department ... preferably someone who has actually left their house at least twice in the last 25 years. I know, I know ... picky picky ... but who am I to talk, right? I bought the damn thing! *wink*
