Brittomart I've played with an iPad for like, three days. No one needs an iPad. It's really cool, and it does a lot of things, and it's an awesome product.

But no one NEEDS it.

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments well, when you break down really not needing things it takes away most all of our belongings. besides very basic food, water, shelter and clothing we actually need very little


message 4: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) We need you, Kevin.

"Every time your pooch moves, barks, or naps it's behavior is detected by the tag."

I would go CRAZY if I had to read that. Though actually, if it could give me locations I might be curious for one day. Does he sleep on the blue couch? I often suspect so. How does he get stuff that is on the counter, seemingly out of reach? My current theory is that someone leaves a chair pulled out from the table, and he jump to the chair, to the table, to the counter, but I'd love to know for sure.

The ipad turned out to be heavier than I expected. It should be lighter. Good thing I didn't buy one.

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I agree about the Ipad...too limited and I can't think of a cool reason to get one except for the snazzy screen.


message 9: by Jammies (new)

Jammies Sarah, I've wondered about those kinds of things too, but it would be easier just to set up a webcam, yes?

The contraption freaks me out! And the Christmas-y music of the website is disturbing, an excellent combo. XD

Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) Poor dog has to walk with a load in its pants. So sad.

Aynge (ayngemac) | 1202 comments A Snuggie. IT'S A BACKWARDS ROBE! My niece got one and after she washed it once it started to fall apart.

What a ripoff.


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) My mom had ordered one off t.v. when they first came out and she got some sort of 2 for 1 deal and figured she'd dump one on me.

I'm short and the thing is SO long that forget about trying to get up with the thing on. You'll just trip and fall trying to walk. Don't really see the point of a piece of clothing that you have to strip off every time you want to shift or move.

The only time it ever got use was at the computer desk when my arms were cold because blankets are hard to type around and keep in place.

Alas, the thing has long since been tossed. I just wasn't using it enough to warrant having this huge piece of felt laying around.

Scout (goodreadscomscout) | 3447 comments I was talking to my friend Chuck on the phone, and when he told me he was wearing a zebra-striped snuggie, I snorted a little snort. Thank god it wasn't too noticeable because he proceeded to tell me how much he liked his snuggie.


message 18: by Jammies (new)

Jammies Ugg boots or any similar boots. Ick.

An electric can opener. An industrial coin counter. A cash register. A robotic toenail clipper.


message 20: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) A robot that was intended to cut anything on my body would be one of the very last things I would want. Oh ... and Ugg boots. (Ick.)


message 21: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (jhaltenburger) The amazing Ronco inside-the-egg-shell egg scrambler. And if you think I'm making that up, think again. It was advertised during the flintstones repeats when I was a kid.

A maxipad warmer. A Bedazzler. A nail polish strainer. A spaghetti detangler.


message 23: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) I remember the egg shell thingy. When I lived in Utah, I met one of the people who helped Ron Popeil invent and market a lot of his gadgets.

A cornholer.


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) One of those containers that boils your pasta when you add water to it. Is this any easier than boiling water on the stove?

Toast rack.


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) A roomba vacuum.

Aynge (ayngemac) | 1202 comments I used to say ick to both Uggs and Birkenstocks. But my Uggs keep my feet and calves warm in the winter and my Birks are extremely comfortable. I don't care how they look.

Would you need a Norwegian or Finnish ass-waxer?


message 34: by Stacia (the 2010 club) (last edited Jan 03, 2011 02:45PM) (new)

Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) Uggs don't bother me since I haven't converted to skinny/straight leg jeans yet and my boot cut pants cover them all the way down to where all you can see is the bottom of the shoe. I like to slip them on to go out and I don't even put on socks because they're all soft inside. However, I don't buy Ugg brand. I get the cheapass Target store ones.

I have never owned a pair of Birkenstocks and never will. They are as hideous as Crocs are to me.

My grandmother's fifty year old electric can opener still works, and I have to admit it's handy. My mother has it. The main selling point is the magnet that grabs the top when you're done, so you don't have to mess with the edges to bend it back, or dig it out of the can. Not that those things are hard, but it's still handy.


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) We have one of those electric can openers that mounts under the counter. I love it.


message 37: by Scout (new)

Scout (goodreadscomscout) | 3447 comments Grandma Minna gave me a manual can opener. You punch the pointed end into the can and jack it around using the edge of the can. Never fails.

I got one to direct me to all the gyms and fields that my kids played sports at. It is also good for finding restaurants etc. in the area that you are in.


message 40: by Scout (new)

Scout (goodreadscomscout) | 3447 comments It sounds like a good thing, then. I like maps and books with pages you can turn. Kicking and screaming, I may be eventually dragged into the present:)

A nail polish strainer??!?!??! WTF? Throw out the nail polish and buy another bottle at that point, that's nasty.

I just got one of these for Christmas! I think my mother was at a loss for what to get me. It's kind of funny, but I definitely did not need it.
