Kids innovating with their Nintendo DS

My kids are the in the other room playing on their Nintendo DSs. These are handheld game devices that have built-in networking so the devices can communicate with each other. My older one is telling my younger one "sound it out!!!" It sounds like a spelling lesson.

My older daughter is using her Nintendo DS to teach my younger son to read! She writes a work on her DS and he has to read it on his. They're able to lay around sprawled out on bean bags and sofas looking up at their DSs. I can imagine that in days of old, the two would have sat at a table with a piece of paper between them. But how much more fun to lay around.

Hey I'm not complaining :-) Good kids.

Goldfish S'mores Adventures

My office mate, Joe Hung (employee #1 at NetBase), and I love camping. He camps more than I do and so was first to find and tell me about a great new product, Goldfish S'mores Adventure. This is no ordinary bag of Goldfish. Each bag contains a mixture of chocolate grahams, marshmallow, and honey graham fish that are all shaped like Goldfish. A tasty innovation!

Thanks Joe!
