the telltale smell
1. "Let the whole family sniff it" is now a serious contender for being the Official Weblog Slogan.
2. I was amazed that the scratch'n'sniff technology actually does work over the Internet. I have no idea how, but, if you don't believe me, try it right now on your monitor. I don't know if it works with Macs--although they were supposed to be developing a special iSmell interface--but I can tell you that a couple of swipes across my flat-screen PC monitor and now my whole office smells like some kind of sinister substance.
"Is there a natural gas leak in there?" one of my colleagues just shouted as they walked by.
