O brave new world!

That has such high-tech dealie-bobs in't! I know it's stupid, but that watch in the picture links to your cell phone via bluetooth. When the phone in your pocket/bag rings, the watch vibrates and the watch's display shows who's calling. I won't buy it for myself for Christmas, but I could. I mention that because if you'd offered me such a thing when I was, say, eleven, I think my head would probably have exploded. When I was a child, only the Men from Uncle could own something like that. Now every stupid nerd with too much money can have one. Pleasurable sigh.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
