I still want a USB Typewriter. Also, my birthday is January 9. Just FYI.

@rrhoover I just replied to the wrong thread like a noob but yeah, we should film a write-off. You with USB Typewriter and me with Freewrite. Would make for some good footage!

As a journalist, writer and college student, this entire concept/product excites me. But as a journalist, writer and college student, this price tag crushes me.

@rossdcurrie Yeah, the old domain redirects accordingly. I guess you can only bootstrap off Papa H's rep for so long...

$450? LOL. @kadavy likes this $19 thing more but I just bought a typewriter instead.

@shloky Indeed! Though, I ended up upgrading to the AlphaSmart NEO, which set me back about $45. I love it, and don't mind at all that it has no cloud capabilities (you can connect it to your computer via USB and sit there while it "types" into a document). The important "product" of such a device is less the words you have typed, and more the connections you have made in your brain.

@kadavy @shloky You can find on eBay the AlphaSmart Neo 2 at $29.00 with free shipping! In fact, I just bought one :)
