Introducing a genuinely exciting item of information technology

The Pilot G2 "Pixie" pen, if you want to get technical. Like a normal pen but small enough to go in the pocket of your jeans. Or, at this time of year, shorts.

No money has changed hands in connection with this message.

    Is it any better than the Fisher "Bullet Pen", which has fitted into pockets since the 1940s? A design classic.

    If you go to Ryman's they sell pens by the till that start off tiny and stretch out. I've amused (I think) many people with my fabulous extending pen.

    Or not - the Russians may have used a pencil in space, but consider the hazard of bits of broken pencil lead, to say nothing of shavings, in zero gravity.

    And presumably they didn't need to write any cheques?

    Another bit of pocket sized information technology for you.

    print that off and bung together with a phonecard, all held together with a bulldog clip, and you've got yourself a poormans smarthphone.
