Hi Molly and Jason (and also Kelley, but she won’t be there)

I’ve just found the ultimate workstation. The Emperor by NovelQuest [ http://www.novelquest.com/emperor.html ]. Its the only workstation worthy of getting the job done if you’re planning on bringing everyone over to the Dark side…

So you guys might consider getting CBS to buy these for all of you — launch is in July, price unannounced.
I so want this it hurts. :(

Found via Gizmodo [ http://gizmodo.com/5015730/emperor-workstation-belongs-in-the-death-star-my-office ]

Love the show!

P.S. Where is that violin piece from “What the hell?” from? I just love it, but the needle scratching and running off ruins it every time! :P


Hey Guys!

In episode 93, you discussed the leisure tub. Its pure awesomeness inevitably brings up the question: What if it becomes self-aware? You’d call it from work and tell it to set the water and change the channel to Oprah, and it responds, “I’m sorry, Kelly, I’m afraid I can’t do that.” And then, when you do get home and get in the tub, it turns the water up to scalding and kills you. Think about that.

--Niko

P.S. Bye Kelly! We miss you!


I noticed that we do not have a Facebook group for the Gadgettes podcast. I asked Jason about it–he said he has too much stuff that he’s busy with, so I created one. So, let all your listeners know: all they have to do is search for “Gadgettes” on Facebook and they should find the group. If you have a Facebook, please join.
