Latest Executive Craze: Palm Pilot Implants

from the bbspot-gets-better-and-better dept

Brian writes “Santa Clara – No one thought that last year’s craze of inter-aural cellphone implants and inter-cranial pagers could be topped, but they were wrong. This year, the cutting edge executive is surgically implanting her Palm Pilot directly onto her hand. Just a few skin grafts and four screws, and the useless left hand now becomes a highly efficient PDA holder. palm_hand.jpg (9104 bytes) The Palm Pilot Implant surgery was developed jointly by Palm, Inc. and Johns Hopkins Medical Center after extensive market research by Palm revealed a strong demand. ‘Several executives complained about losing their PDA, dropping their Palm Pilot or thieves stealing their Palm Pilot. At Palm we reacted to this customer feedback by perfecting the Subdermal Palm Pilot Insertion technique along with surgeons at Johns Hopkins. Now it would take a machete wielding madman to get your Palm away from you.'” I have to admit, there have been too many Onion-wannabes out there, but BBSpot has been doing a great job at becoming the techie version of the Onion.
