Wally: The biggest tech companies want to win the battle for your living room. But they are unwisely focusing on developing better TV sets. Today I give you me design for a fully digital couch. It has all of the features you would expect, including a butt warmer, surround sound, bottle opener and back scratcher. But you can also control the lights, curtains, temperature and TV by using your buttocks like a mouse on the seat cushion. This is a loft click and... this is a right. The prototype arrives tomorrow, and I'll be testing it for the next six months. Maybe I'll sell my house.

"In software development, the item being cut, metaphorically speaking, is often plentiful and inexpensive." "In many cases, the cost of measuring incorrectly is low compared to th time wasted doing two measurements before every action." "You philosophy is better suited for rock carving than web design." "Do you have any wise sayings that involve churning your own butter, or putting saddles on dinosaurs?" "Don't bite the hand that feeds you." "I have direct deposit."
