Poetictech has some pretty nice workstation desks (dang cool). I want the one that rotates 120 degrees every 8 hours. (warning: slow site)

No thanks to the 130KB home page...

Hey, I just found that site this morning, too! Crazy.

I love those desks. I want those desks. Yes, all of them! :-)

Screw the Aeron, I've got my eyes on an Aura!

Whoever designed that page should have their fingers cut off.

Whoever designed that page probably had no fingers, hence...

Well, considering that broadband access is higher on the average list of acquisitions than silly over priced workstations, the 130kb home page isn't that big a deal.

Jeez, cool desks, but I'm thanking Gawd that I have a T1 to see 'em with.

Outrageous.

I feel bad when my own pages hit double digits in size. There's no excuse for a 130K home page.

Look, if you can't afford a measly T1, then you shouldn't be in the market for these contraptions in the first place.

Um, am I the only one who's reminded of Darth Vader's regeneration chamber?

Really, these are a little much . . .

I can afford a measly T1, but can't access it in this part of the world.

Isn't this what venture capital is for?

Geez, these look so comfortable that you would never have to leave your workstation. Hmm...

So I guess that means the next generation of their products will include a built-in toilet in the seat (with optional body-temperature water spraying attachment), and a tube-feeding device (with ozone-friendly refrigeration for the liquefied food product).

I expect that their primary customer is going to be television and movie studios who want to show how "high tech" their characters are.
