As the TAD writing team returns for fall semester, so does our silliness. For this month’s blog we will attempt to persuade the other poor souls in college why our chosen items from ThisIsWhyI’mBroke.com is necessary in their lives. And so, down the rabbit hole of very cool, but very unnecessary items I went, emerging into a world where panda onesies, offensive fortune cookies and inflatable bumper soccer existed!
Amidst the camera lens coffee mugs, deluxe mermaid tails, bubble wrap calendars, and target practice alarm clocks, I finally found something my heart just couldn’t say no to: a USB typewriter. For a mere $799, you’ll be able to write in style while satisfying your inner hipster! The real question isn’t why you should buy this practical tool, it’s why you shouldn’t. Who needs money for food or gas when you can own a USB typewriter?!
Ladies and gentleman, forget soulless Mac laptops that all look the same, you can add personality and diversity to your workflow.
Rated highly as a “groundbreaking advancement in the field of obsolescence” by those who sell it, this outstanding product represents the holy matrimony of manual and digital. The USB typewriter lets writers type out their thoughts on paper even as it electronically records to an SD card. Not to mention, this versatile device can also function as a keyboard for your desktop or tablet computer and iPad, while Bluetooth allows users to connect to smartphones as well.
Rave reviews have poured in all over; it’s been featured on NPR, Wired, CNN, was named one of the “Top iPad Accessories” by PC Magazine, and even Martha Stewart has joined the bandwagon. A product of this caliber might even be something that Kanye would love more than Kanye!
The USB typewriter will earn you the envy of everyone on the block, or at least everyone in your office when you bring that bad boy in to work. Indulge yourself or a loved one, but mainly yourself, in this functional and practical treat. Join the cult that is the USB Typewriter.
