ex machina

on the treo 600, small keypads and face grease

during my recent layovers in various airports around the country, i've noticed that the treo 600 is quiet popular with the early-adopting suits, which makes seems to jibe with the anectodes of treo madness sweeping the nation . i've been drooling over the treo , but i had a few reactions to seeing it in the wild that surprised me. firstly, it's uglier in real life than it is in print. i know this bucks the conventional wisdom, but i think it really is ugly and clunky. secondly, after seeing people pressing the device against their faces while making calls, i can't help but think that the tiny qwerty keyboard would be susceptible to accumulation of, er, face grease.

i know, nobody wants to talk about it, but facial oils are a reality and you have to wonder how easy it is to use the keyboard with a good layer of slippery face grease.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
