A Comforting Baby Pillow Or The Cause Of Nightmares?

Pillow shaped like hand for baby supportZaky® Infant Pillow:

The Zaky is an ergonomic infant pillow designed by a mom to mimic the size, weight, touch, and feel of her hand and forearm to help her baby with comfort, support, protection, and development. The Zaky can help calm your baby and help your baby sleep better through the night.

I don’t know about this “her” business, though: I comfort our baby, too.

The hands look like they were lopped off a muppet.

Busy Days Of Summer

If I didn’t have children I’d probably be staring at a computer monitor all day. Instead, here’s what I did this weekend:


Babytalk magazine breast coverThis has been circulating across the blogsphere lately: ‘Breast’ Cover Gets Mixed Reaction

“I was SHOCKED to see a giant breast on the cover of your magazine,” one person wrote.
These readers weren’t complaining about a sexually explicit cover, but rather one of a baby nursing, on a wholesome parenting magazine — yet another sign that Americans are squeamish over the sight of a nursing breast…
“My kid needed to eat,” says the 29-year-old from South Abingdon, Mass. And she wasn’t going to go hide in a not-so-clean restroom: “I don’t send people to the bathroom when THEY want to eat,” she says.

My wife is a La Leche League leader, so I know a bit about breast-feeding and its benefits to children and their mothers; but still, the reaction of those ignorant about how children have been fed FOREVER is sad.

The photo is hardly controversial: it shows no evidence of a nipple. Hell, the baby could be suckling a fat person’s elbow.

There’s a simple solution to acclimate those with JUST a sexual attitude towards breasts: have women show their tits ALL THE TIME.

Should women show their tits all the time?
Only when they’re breast-feeding.
Only at strip clubs.
Only to their lovers.
Only if men show their dicks all the time.


Google Talk Keeps Getting Better

Google Talk transferring filesGoogle Talk was released almost a year ago as an alternative to Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, and many other instant messaging software available.

The major features I like about Google Talk are:

  • Its interface isn’t busy and cluttered, unlike Yahoo’s mess.
  • Its integration with Google’s Gmail is convenient: it saves chat conversations in your gmail account, so you can easily review past conversations.

And now, Google Talk has added the ability to transfer files between users and leave voicemail if someone isn’t available.

I wish Google Talk had the ability to chat with more than one person at a time, as in a chat room. I’m sure they’ll be adding that feature soon enough.

I’m surprised the internet’s spine has not been broken yet with the useless traffic that’s increasing every day.

Note: Your version of Google Talk may not have these new features yet. Google tends to roll out updates to clients over a week or so.
