William Blake once said he could look at the knot in a piece of wood until it frightened him. I only had to look at these oooms wooden memory sticks for a split second before I was profoundly frightened. Sure, I appreciate the idea - they were made to stand out against the natural environment of computers and offices and picked from the woods because of their natural beauty - but the notion of jamming a stick into my computer just makes me nervous. Not as nervous as forcing a hot dog in it, but nervous nonetheless.
