Get your gadget on

Postby Elorrum » Thu Nov 17, 2011 10:01 am

I love gadgets, hokey, ingenious, silly, solving problems you didn't even know you had.

here's one that looks like it could go wrong if you thought for a moment you were holding a mug and took a sip.

Yes this is not only a taser. it is an MP3 PLAYA!!
c = 1 gives the sequence 0, 1, 2, 5, 26,…, which tends to infinity...

Yeah, but that geological formation is so rare that there are non in Nevada and we don't have to plan for one, unless we are driving cross-country from Idaho.

HiBby,I love the "it's a _____ and a ______" gadget class. Tazer plus mp3 plus ohmy leopard skin. That's good gadget. Fishy, you are right, "It's a playa and an anything would just be too unwieldly an object.

No. I don't see any of the battery operated devises that relax.

However, that's going to take a mighty big purse... Um, camelback.

Now you don't have to lug your awkard ukalalie all over the place, you can practically keep this in your pocket! Let the Hawai'ian music bloom!

Don't think of it as a mp3 player / taser, but mp3 player with feedback reinforcement device. **ZAP** "Now let's try this again. What do you think of my latest mix?"

Testing a new audio toy today. It's small, accurate full range mono, and pretty loud! YAY, ebay steal. It has a beautiful feeling tuning dial (DIAL! in this day and age?) a real sensitive slow adjusting tuner. Battery power too. PAL stands for personal audio laboratory. awful high fallutin' name for a little radio. A gadget's reach should exceed it's grasp, I say, but this one is grabbing at a high level.

Knobs are well known to be ergonomically superior for use by humans.

The only reason sliders are used on mixing boards is visual recognition.
