Technology can solve all kinds of technology problems

The other day, Paul Mitchell wondered about teh Facebook. Of course, he did this on teh Facebook.

Here's what he said:
I do not get on FAILbook's home page very often, but when I do, it is filled with useless crap that I never want to ever see. Does anyone know how to turn off COMPLETELY, TOTALLY, and FOREVER, the stuff I have "X'd" in red?
Milford Marwick had a low-tech suggestion:
But, really, a problem with technology should be solved by technology, right? So, I had the perfect suggestion:
True, my suggestion costs a little more -- a 64GB 3G iPad costs a little over $800 -- but it's money well-spent. Plus the Facebook app is free.

But, it does have its drawbacks. You can't print from an iPad.

Or you couldn't until now.
You can get a photocopier for under $200.

See, technology can solve anything!


  1. That's funny, Basil. Thanks for the morning chuckle.

    I think Paul doesn't really believe that I use my trusty Priority Mail cut-out box while Failbooking.

    Thanks for the couple of links the last couple of days.

    BTW: It's "Milford," not "Milton Marwick." I mean, if we're gonna use a fake name, lets' at least spell the fake name right. ;)

    Just sayin'...

  2. When you see Milford, you tell him I apologize for the typo.

    Of course, since I was writing about something Paul did, a typo seems appropriate.

  3. Nyuk! Yeah, Paul is not like old Milford and his buddy. I don't think he's found the Blogger "Preview" tab yet.
