iCurve is pretty useful

Last week I received an iCurve I'd ordered from Small Dog. Impression? Quite useful, even though the side-ports on the AlBook mean you can't set it flush with your monitor:

It's sturdier than it looks and the danger of the Powerbook sliding off without substantial help is exceedingly slim. But all the fuss about its appealing shape is kind of baffling -- unless you're at eye-level it's almost all hidden.

But that's okay -- well-designed stuff is always appreciated.
