It’s not the most useless thing you can buy on Amazon by any means, but it’s still stupid. Amazon suggests pairing it with a writing pad that’s designed to look like an iPad, so you can look like you’re scrawling on a tablet computer with a spoon and make sure that your co-workers truly, truly begin to worry about you.
