Thursday feature: A turn to lighter fare

By Jennifer Rubin

In our Thursday feature, we ask prominent conservatives a nonpolitical question. Last week it was desserts.

This week we ask: What's your favorite technology gadget?

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell: "Blackberry."

Dana Perino (former White House press secretary, now a Republican consultant): "GPS. It has saved us from many fights in the car."

Tucker Carlson (Daily Caller's editor in chief): "Toaster."

Peter Robinson (former Reagan speechwriter, Hoover Institute fellow, founder of Ricochet.com.): "The 'Echo' smartpen. Captures both written material and sound."

Stephen Hayes (senior writer at the Weekly Standard): "Pandora Internet radio app on my Iphone."

Nobody said thermos? How does it know?

I knew of Pandora and thought it was a brilliant creation. I then learned that one of the creators of the Pandora site was by someone I used to play sports with when I was a kid! More over, that person is the grandson of Abraham Zapruder - of "Zapruder film" fame (that recorded JFK's assassination). How this is relevant, I have no idea.

Bic Velocity 0.9mm #2 mechanical pencil. 0.5 and 0.7's break under pressure too often. Nothing works better for crosswords for those of us too dumb, impatient, and/or neat to try ink. Cross-outs suck! Minimal erasures is the moral victory.
