PawSense — "Cat-like typing detected"

Cat-like-typing-detected

Tell me more.

From the website

............................

When cats walk or climb on your keyboard, they can enter random commands and data, damage your files, and even crash your computer. This can happen whether you are near the computer or have suddenly been called away from it.

PawSense is a software utility that helps protect your computer from cats. It quickly detects and blocks cat typing, and also helps train your cat to stay off the computer keyboard.

• Every time your computer boots up, PawSense will automatically start up in the background to watch over your computer system.

• Even while you use your other software, PawSense constantly monitors keyboard activity. PawSense analyzes keypress timings and combinations to distinguish cat typing from human typing. PawSense normally recognizes a cat on the keyboard within one or two pawsteps.

 • If a cat gets on the keyboard, PawSense makes a sound that annoys cats. This teaches your cat that getting on the keyboard is bad even if humans aren't watching.

• Once a cat has been recognized, PawSense blocks the cat's keyboard input . This keeps the cat from entering lots of commands to your programs or operating system.

• PawSense also includes a screensaver mode, which features extra-sensitive cat detection, protection, and sonic training and a one-click escape button.

Musical Wine Glasses

21082_zoom1

From the website:

............................

The etchings on the glasses are musical notations that correspond to the level of the liquid — when the user drinks to D for example, she or he may run a finger along the rim of a glass to create its lush, sonorous note.

Or, for the more percussive partier, the same note will ring out with a gentle rap of her or his utensil on the side of the glass.

Each glass covers a full 12-note octave from A flat to G.

Glasses measure 8.46"H x 3.54"Ø and hold 13.5 oz.

Made in Austria from lead-free crystal.

............................

Set of two: $45 (wine not included).

Doody Head Gaming Set

1

Two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post columnist Gene Weingarten made me doo it.

And what is it with guys and poo, anyway?

I mean, how come there are no women playing in the photos?

From the website:

The best games are the simplest ones, like throw a thing at another thing.

41jMKL2zPQL._AA300_

In this case, the things in question are doodies and heads, respectively: throw a doody at a head.

6

Look, we know this isn't the type of game you'll break out at your next wine tasting (prove us wrong and send us some embarrassing pictures), but it is a heck of a lot of fun.

2

Each set includes two Velcro hats and three soft tossable doodies for your pleasure.

.........................

I'm thinking that wearing one of these hats while running the New York Marathon might be a great way to introduce bookofjoeTV to the world when it's finally time.

$13.97.
