GearGripper — Episode 2: Better than advertised

Yyy

Constant readers know that if something's no good, you'll prolly never read about it here: life's too short to trash stuff when there's so much out there that's good and worth spending a few pixels on.

The GearGripper — featured in Episode 1 a couple weeks ago (October 21, 2012, at 9:01 p.m.) because I happened on it somewhere and it seemed weird and interesting, two criteria which immediately put stuff at the head of my queue — appeared worth buying to try out so I ordered one.

Or at least I thought I bought one, until today's UPS delivery included a box containing one with a note on the label (below) from Brian Landau, the designer.

555

Kewl.

As is the device in all its glory, having put paid to my chaotic desktop and showing the ability to play nicely with Gray Cat, lagniappe indeed.

Still $9 and IMHO cheap at twice the price.

Hi Joe, I just went to order one, I registered and found shiping to be UPS Gound 2 -7 days at 9.49. Too High. Being an entrepreneur myself one must get shipping down as low as possible for people to bite. I was close but no cigar.

Joe, I think it's a great idea and a great design. I am going to order one. Your photo hooked me.

Look deep into your cat's eyes. You can see the inner rock star dying to break free -
