The Portal 2 Spatula may not help you with your microwave cooking, but when frying eggs, this Aperture Laboraties approved kitchen implement will make you flip. The Portal 2 Spatula is a high quality gourmet gadget that will also, with its unique design, add a bit of flare to your kitchen.

The Portal 2 Spatula is Not a Toy

“Most people emerge from suspension terribly undernourished. I want to congratulate you on beating the odds and somehow managing to pack on a few pounds.” — GLaDOS, Portal 2

We have all seen the items on the Internet that claim to be kitchen helpers. With the Portal 2 Spatula, you are purchasing a quality made spatula that serves two purposes. First, the spatula is made from stainless steel, not plastic, like some spatulas. Second, the Aperture Laboratories logo adds a design style to the spatula that separates this kitchen utensil from the pack in a way that any Portal 2 fan will appreciate.

And you can pack on a few pounds with all the things you’ll make with this fine implement, much to the smug satisfaction of the psychotic GLaDOS.

Here are some of the Portal 2 Spatula bonuses:

  • This is an officially licensed product — not a cheap imitation.
  • The head of the spatula is constructed of stainless steel with a nylon gripping handle.
  • The spatula has been kitchen tested.
  • The spatula is large, measuring 14″ long with a width of 3″.

This is Not Your Mother’s Spatula

We can all remember Mom in the kitchen cooking eggs, flipping pancakes, or serving a piece of pie using a spatula. We also may recall that the spatula that Mom used was short in stature with a small head for flipping. For those of us who have used a standard spatula, we know that trying to flip a fried egg with a small head spatula usually results with a broken yolk. This is an intolerable situation for those who like to dunk their toast in the yolk, which enhances the breakfast experience.

So you are not a yolk soaker? No problem. This bad boy can flip a flapjack, scoop up scrambled eggs, and mix or blend many cooking ingredients. However, some of you may have used a spatula as a fly swatter, as a catapult, or even to scratch your back. No matter what uses you have for a spatula, the Portal 2 Spatula will do it better — whether you’re a Portal 2 fan or not.

Flip Camera Flops As Cisco Fires 550 Employees – Who Is Next?

Cisco has announced that it will be shutting the doors on its Flip Camera, once the darling of those who enjoyed recording those special moments. The Flip Camera took the nation by storm and sold two million units the first year it was released in 2007. Cisco bought the rights to the Flip in 2009 and thought the camera would be around for many moons. Unfortunately, the smart phone, with its own built-in camera and ability to record video, came out and sales of the Flip flopped.

But there is more to this story than just Cisco closing down one of its divisions and firing 550 employees. It is a signal on how just fast technology can change and how quickly consumers will bolt to the next best thing. The smart phone is the first device that has brought destruction to other devices in a quick and final death plunge. This is also a warning to others that the smart phone is going to get better and better and eventually may rule the roost and dethrone any in its path.

As new devices are introduced at a rapid pace, the time between industry cycles gets shorter and shorter. The Flip Camera lasted only four years before Cisco was forced to shutter the doors on the project. But smart phones have also put a dent in other technologies and devices besides just cameras.

Smart phones are starting to replace many of the traditional devices that man has been using for decades, even centuries. The smart phone is replacing the wrist watch since the phone can tell the user the time and be 100% accurate. The alarm clock and portable music players are also being replaced by the smart phone as are other devices like GPS units and cameras.

With Cisco raking in some $40B a year in revenue, closing the Flip Camera division — which was taking in $400M — may also be an attempt to shore up the company’s profit margin.

Comments welcome.
