Sure was considerate of Targus to manufacture the Wireless Keypad we're selling today, so accountants, data-enterers, and competitive ten-key racers can get their number-pad freak on with their laptops. But why are those losers the only ones who get that kind of consideration? Don't the hard-working millwrights, goatherds, and Feng Shui consultants of America deserve their own tailor-made laptop peripherals? That's the idiotic premise of this week's throwdown:

Show us laptop add-ons designed for specific professions.


What about a USB steroid dispenser for Major League Baseball players? A wireless crystal ball for the contemporary techno-gypsy? A plug 'n' play money-laundering machine for U.S. Congressmen? We're sure you can think of far funnier examples. Well, pretty sure, anyway.

Post your entry here by 11:59 PM CDT on Sunday, August 19, 2007. Prizes are $20/$50/$100 for 3rd/2nd/1st. The rules and criteria for winning: our panel of geniuses can and will make stuff up as it goes along. Use Photoshop, pen and ink, collage, MSPaint, scrimshaw carving, tattoos, ice sculpture, whatever, but it’ll only be judged if it’s visible in our forums as a jpg, gif, or png. As we are fond of saying, try to keep your maximum width to 450px. If you need a place to host your pictures, try www.imageshack.ws or www.photobucket.com. We have no connection to either, but they seem free and easy to use. And if you want us to be sure your entry was indeed your work, post links to your source images. The more sure we are that you did your own work, the more likely we are to consider it for a prize.

Past money winners:
If you'd like to nominate any entries from this week's contest, email your selections (with links to each individual post) to Jason Toon at jtoon@woot.com by noon CDT on Monday, August 20.

Great!!!

This would actually work for most adult games, too. Maybe a "add lube" button too... and maybe a "hide hardcore extreme bass fishing from mom/spouse/dog" button too...

Actually, I don't really care for all the bickering that's going on over there. This here is just fun.
