Some of my favorite things, courtesy of the Today Show and its Web site:
- Computers: unfortunately there's no Web story to link to, but Al Roker interviewed someone with great toys this morning about the best computers on the market now for kids. Featured were the LeapPad (which was, truth be told, my whole motivation for getting pregnant), a tablet PC sporting Microsoft's OneNote 2003 (take notes simultaneously integrated with an audio recording of the speaker—sweet!), and the Microsoft Office X Student and Teacher Edition (the full Office suite at a much reduced price). Software piracy on the Today Show?? Not quite, but that last product did prompt Roker to speculate aloud about inverting the traditional student/adult purchasing gambit.
- Shoes: "The Ultimate Shoe Guide, Fall 2003." Need I say more?
- Al Franken: "Fresh from his legal victory over Fox News and his appearance on NBC's Today show, Al Franken joins MSNBC.com chat to talk about his new book, 'Lies: And the Lying Liars Who Tell Them.'" The live chat with Al will take place tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. (Eastern, I assume).
