Lightsaber Envy

Ok, NOW I want an iPhone.

Not because it now runs the Internet on the fast Edge network, or because it has GPS, or because it would collapse my phone/iPod/calendar combo into one device.

But because you can now download an application (one of the many, many free programs that became available last week, I presume), that pops up a lightsaber icon on the screen. You touch it, and the lightsaber extends out of the handle, making the classic lightsaber-igniting humming sound. Then, when you wave your phone around in the air, it makes noises like you are fighting with the blade!

It is so cool.

I am such a dork.

(But, since I am married to someone who downloaded this and then gleefully showed it to me when he got home from work today, I know I am not alone in my dorkiness.)

Hee-hee. I know what you mean. It may not exactly have been dorky, but I once bought a car...a little Austin Healy Sprite...because it had three, not two, windscreen wipers.
