I realize that I recently posted about a modern dog bed, and I swear I’m not trying to become a dog-centric writer, but I just had to share my latest obsession, which consequently, happens to be about dogs.

a litl bit in love with you.

November 6th, 2009 · Comments Off on a litl bit in love with you.

Meet your newest obsession — litl. It’s an intuitive Webbook designed for Internet surfing, and it weighs just three pounds. You can use the litl in two ways — laptop mode (self-explanatory) or easel style, which gets a little more clever because instead of navigating with a trackpad or keyboard, you use a wheel (designed […]
