“Welly, welly, well, to what do I owe the extreme pleasure of this ganjy gadget? What’s it going to be then, eh?
There was me, that is Lexa, and my pelendus Pria, Georgina, and Dim, all sat in the So Milkbar with the package sent my way, safe of the rainy blacklight without. As everybody is fast to forget, newspapers not being read much these days, this thing is quite the jem, folding like a zagamine and opening up to play any viddytube or app.
A dayback marvel, as the literature has it, so here we are ignoring the sayjaylays at the bar in favor of this mystic slab. It was the jang, or so we were told, and two grand to boot.
Unspun from its box, the ol’ android came on and the hardware was alive. Oh, jala, jala! Like a sheet of rarespun heaven metal or silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now under my flicking and tapping fingertips.

With a most formal slap it went back in the boxy box and it was as if it were never before my eye. I may yet be inspired to do the ultra-violent on this nabbeny failbox. Money isn’t everything, but you have to admit my pelendus that two grannies is more than enough for nothing.
“What a mess, what a sellongy,” said I, taking my cane and heading out into the grim night. “What sort of fool gets stuck with a folding lemon?” ㅠㅠ

Household Hacker picked up a few items and subjected them to tests. None were terrible or dangerous, but the gimmicks don’t really work — a trimmer that uses […]
The Inverter is a kickstarted, sub-$500, 34mm automatic mechanical watch built around Citizen’s Miyota Calibre 9000 movement, augmented with a custom module that makes the watch run backwards, so that it can be mounted so that the movement is exposed (beneath a sapphire crystal), with the back of the watch becoming its “face.”
