For The Discerning, Segway-Hating Man About Town:
Hammacher-Schlemmer's fantastic Unexpected
catalogue is full of classy transportation devices, among countless other fascinating products, with prices to suit all pockets. The Two-Person Submarine
is a snip at $62,900 but claustrophic types are well catered for too. There's the Zem 4-person bicycle
for $6,499.95; the One Person Helium Balloon
for 20K, the popular All-Terrain 2-Person Hovercraft
; the very European Vespa
motorbike; the extremely enticing Danish Police Runabout
at only $5,999.95; the sexy little Amphibious Car
for $9,995.95 and many, many
more outlandish and distinctive vehicles, from 7 Person tricycles
(for you, 16K)to a wooden '54 wooden
Mercedes 300SL. For more sedentary gentlefolk, there are Feline Drinking Fountains, Impervious Unbreakable Chip Trays and, for only 25 bucks, a Barbershop Hot Lather
Machine. Fancy anything, Madam or Sir?

Catalogue your personal library...
I have a sizeable library, and have long wanted to catalog the whole thing for insurance purposes and for general gee-whiz potential. The prospect of hand entering information for each of the books, though, has kept me from doing anything. Now, thanks to a link at PB's site
, I've got the itch again... and something to scratch it.
Note to Mac users: Mac-Barcode has a USB scanner available.
