Gadgets, girls: not what you think
When I was little, we didn't have your fancy-schmancy computers. Without the world wide web -- or Blogger -- I had to walk two miles through the driven snow just to find ways to waste time. But girls today have options. So when they want a hobby, they can make accessories with high-tech functionality. Frames that talk. Skirts with magnets. Hell, Switch.tv even appeals to ME. And since it was launched by Project Runway's Diana Eng , it's all the more fascinating. You know Diana. She was once famously described as "adorable in that way that only the goofy intellectual nerd-girls can be," but she could in fact be a 'tween brand waiting to happen. So y'all! C'mon! Grab the wire-strippers and remember: "We girls can do anything."
