A History of Obama Feigning Interest in Mundane Things at New York Magazine inspires Barack Obama Looking at Awesome Things. Awesome things like Captain America's shield, baby dinosaurs, and a Tardis.

What?

Speak 'What' again! Thou cur, cry 'What' again!
I dare thee utter 'What' again but once!
I dare thee twice and spit upon thy name!
Now, paint for me a portraiture in words,
If thou hast any in thy head but 'What',
Of Marsellus Wallace!

Between the iPad coming out, the Dear Spouse getting a netbook for "in the field" blogging, and watching a bunch of folks at a workshop last week hauling out their trade paperback-sized computers, I've caught a touch of netbook fever. They really do seem to be a good size - big enough to type on and to have a decent screen, small enough to be extremely portable.

I admit the blush came somewhat off the rose when I handled the Dear Spouse's new acquisition. There's still a fairly dense battery in that thing; it's not quite light enough to toss into a shoulder bag* and go. (A backpack, though, sure. But I can do that with a laptop, too.)

And there's return on investment; seriously, how much do I need such a thing? I work in front of a computer. We have multiple computers at home. It's a shiny toy and I'm not even sure I'd play with it all that much.

*In my world, anyway. I know some folks keep pounds and pounds of stuff in their purses or messenger bags. I consider a purse to be a necessary evil when I have to wear clothes with insufficient pockets.
