New Blogging Toy

I finally got me an iGo keyboard for my cell phone. I won it on eBay for $50.
It is pretty neat. If you can see the picture above the part sticking up in the back is where the phone sits. Since I used my phone to take the picture it is not in it.
It pairs up to my phone via bluetooth. I bought it used and it came with no manual or CD with driver software. I managed to finally figure everything out and it works like a charm.
This is the first significant use of it so I have no idea how longs the batteries last. (2 AAA)
Actually this is probably taking longer to type than thumb typing as I am not used to the keys yet.
They have a better one I would like to get someday. Like this one, it hooks up via blue tooth and is the size of a cigarette lighter.
It uses a laser to project a virtual keyboard on the table top. Then with an infrared field it can detect when you "press" a key.
Pretty fucking neat and a great conversation starter. I imagine it won't be long until some of the high end smart phones will have it built in.
The biggest draw back on cell phone blogging for me is, I have grown so fucking used to spell check. Once you are spoiled with that it is hard to get over it.
Any way, time to read some news and see if any of our Alabama officials said something retarded again. Perhaps Jeff Sessions will elaborate on some of the better qualities of the Ku Klux Klan or something.

Update: Forgot to mention that it folds up and fits into a carrying case. Not much bigger than a big cell phone itself.
