A terrific and sad read about Ichiro Suzuki. Jon suggests the Star Wars Force Bands for the Sphero. The OP-1 keyboard from Teenage Engineering looks pretty cool, but expensive. Their Pocket Operators are pretty cool, too, at $50. This thread that started with a girl who likes Star Wars is terrific. Back in the day, we had to rely on toys like The StarBird. Jon had the Magnavox Odyssey and Moltz had the Fairchild Channel F. The Big Trak is probably the closest '70s analog to the...

This year's flu is pretty gnarly. If you get it, what should you do? Look beautiful, of course. Jon suggests NeilMed, presumably made by guys named Neil. Does your baby have snot? Just suck it out.
