Your kid reaches for the screen, and you will have bought a container full of Hello Kitty watches.

Ever since I read _Robots of Dawn_ as a kid- Gladia Delmarre had a similar interface for giving orders to her robotic servants that she imported from Solaria. Having a TI/99-4A with a 40-key keyboard and funky function and control combinations for a lot of characters, this seemed like heaven.

In reality, it's just a modern version of a macro keyboard though- and I suspect, in the long run, will be equally useful (less).

You didn't blame this on Obama in any way, shape, or form. Are you feeling OK?

He didn't do that! Somebody else did! What's the point in blaming a mediocre guy who's just plucking the fruit of statism that others planted?
