Emerging Ancient Technology part one

Enough of the politics, it's time to return to one of my favoured themes, bringing the people of Blogworld up to date with the latest technological developments. Sadly, due to limited funds and the fact I know nothing really about computers, digital cameras, things that you, erm, talk into (I think they're called telephones), I will confine myself to the field of emerging ancient technologies.

Let's kick off with the flint

I'm really excited that the new flints are about to hit the market. I mean, the old flints are so 2003. The new flints will have full XcramenT compatibility, a 60GB edge, and be able to cut through caribou skin in subzero temperatures. As Leon Snigglesnatch, of IMSMSDMAAADDLASLDKKASK Technologies, CA, said at the recent HeadScrew Emerging Neurotrash Expo, this year held in a public toilet in Reno...

"Flints are where it's at now, for market. P-2-P sharpening of flints, videoconferencing via giant plasma screens, large communal cave scenes with naked people leaping over fire, flints downloaded directly to your info-shoe as you stumble through outer space, these are the hot flint apps for 2005..."

So, just how cool are the new flints? Answer - really cool. Subzero.
And what do they do? They let people obsessed with technology bumble on about whatever until infinity. Hooray!

Give me flints or give me death.

Cultural Resonators - great things to say to imaginary friends:

Well, I don't have any flints - but I do have some arrowheads - or as they're called "points"...
