FINALLY! Facebook profiles for my plants!!!

Let's face it, everyone needs one of these.

Look, I'm not complaining or anything, but the mainstream technology market is always 5+ years late delivering the stuff I really want. I always have to shop in Japan for the good stuff.


  1. I yearned for a computer-sync-able pda/camera/mp3/GPS/phone in 1999. Windows mobile is still in its infancy, but I am slightly appeased.
  2. Currently the Internet Treadmill Workstation and Ultimate Wired Home Gym are only offered by me. The internet gym seems obvious.... I've been building it since 2006, but no merchant has yet come up with a high-quality, single packaged unit.
  3. And where are our standardized bluetooth connections to our in-car computer terminals??? No, not just for phone functionality- I mean the full terminal: address book, calendar, GPS, MP3. The whole 9 yards.
  4. For the above to work, speech recognition has to be ubiquitously integrated with all mobile or in-vehicle computers. They technology is available, it just requires a lot of processing power is all. But Ray Kurzweil's been doing this type of thing since I was 2 years old!
  5. And my Bill Gate's style smart-home, where I have an RF ID tag, and each room adjusts to one of my preset, personalized settings as I enter (lights on, perhaps TiVo begins playing the Daily Show... or based on time, lights dim over a period of 10 minutes, white noise machine activates, and bedtime sequence is initiated... and the dining room lights and soft Jazz music upon entry at 6 PM. Why can't this stuff be mass marketed? If it's a function of demand, c'mon everyone, demand it :)!!!
Oh how I digress. The point of this blog post is below.

An exception has occurred to my being ahead of the technology adoption curve.
is ahead of the curve with me, delivering cool technology relatively shortly after I desire it. Heck, I love them so much, I'll give 'em a logo on this post:

SO, I am pleased to announce, that at long last, all of our household plants can finally have their own profiles, with automatic status updates via Twitter! FINALLY!

I think I'm going to buy a $20 RC Helicopter from there, too, or a chain mail shirt to protect me from sharks and in battle. Can't decide. On the one hand, I already have one chain mail glove.
On the other hand, I don't have chain mail headgear or pants, and shark attacks are unlikely.

What to do, what to do.

I think I'll go with the vacuum-powered, wall-driving RC car.
