Your cheating heart

New blog: panopticist

Go ahead. Make my day.

Heh. Some Japanese company has released the above-pictured Big Red Button device, and as Ryan at Engadget notes, it might be merely a cold-war desk ornament. But, as he goes on to joke …

… if they set it up as a single configurable key via USB, well, we’d be in bliss. Though you shouldn’t need to ask, you may want to know what application it would open? Internet Exploder, what else?

If this thing actually is a USB controller, I AM SO GETTING ONE.

(Thanks to Gizmodo for this one!)
