but that is beside the point,
>as I have a question about :
>All the best,

Now create Steve's reply...


There you go! See, it's insanely easy to be blunt, once you get the hang of it.

(Sorry, you can't send email with this, that would be evil.)

Kangaroo! Stand in the Place That You Work!
Snaggy reviews Ergodesktop's Kangaroo adjustable-height desk... he likes it.

The JoyPoll was...
Have you ever emailed someone famous?
  • Never, why bother?
  • Yes I have, and I never heard back.
  • Yes I have, and I heard back!

We were an Amazon Associate for over 15 years, but soon after we published a comic unflattering to Amazon, they canceled our account.

When we tried to find out why, we received this reply... "under the terms of the Operating Agreement, we may terminate your account at any time, with or without cause. This termination is final and not subject to appeal." Gee, thanks Jeff.

But don't worry, we will still bite the hands that feed us, even if they don't help feed us anymore.

Portraits by Nitrozac!

The Joy of Tech is a comic about technology and pop culture. We like to feature the people and events that are making tech news. We tend to focus on Apple news and events because they often affect the industry in general, and because we are longtime Mac users here at GeekCulture Headquarters. We create The Joy of Tech using Apple computers, mostly on our MacBook Pros, running Mac OS X Snow Leopard. We use software from Apple, Adobe, Macromedia, BBedit, OpenOffice.org, and others, including Microsoft (yep, we do use Microsoft Office for Mac on occasion). Nitrozac uses a Wacom tablet to do her illustrations.
