Rewinding the clock… back to “Stupidamouse”

UPDATE 10/26/16:
So I guess Chris Condon’s site is now down.  Luckily, I still have the stuff that was posted there.  So here you go:

ORIGINAL POST FROM JULY 11, 2011:
Holy crap.  I thought this was a joke but I guess not.

Apparently, Business Insider is reporting that Apple has filed for a patent on a “keyless keyboard”.

The moment I read this I thought to myself… haven’t I heard of this before?  And then it dawned on me.

A guy named Chris Condon created a series of ‘datasheets’ back in 1998 that were parodies of ads and such that people released back in the day.  One of them featured a series of devices without buttons called the “Stupidamouse” and a companion device called the “Stupidakeyboard”.

As luck would have it, I’m a packrat for these sort of creations.  Since Chris’ site has long since disappeared, here’s the full PDF.

Oops!  I just discovered Chris Condon’s site is STILL UP after all these years!  YAY!
