Trying to find a way to introduce someone to the internet and the digital world when it’s foreign to them (and they don’t like computers) is tough. But you can make that task easier by picking the right hardware.
Brookstone was a good gadget store, and a good nerd. It was one of us. It was a store that loved massage chairs… and useless gadgets. As a novelty mall shop, it carried light up football speakers, AR laser tag, and flying tanks. Brookstone died.
It died, like so many young retail establishments of its generation, before its time. In your wisdom, Bankruptcy, you took it and closed all of its mall stores. As you took so many bright, flowering young retail stores, like H.H. Gregg, The Limited, and Toys “R” Us. These young stores gave their lives. And so did Brookstone. Brookstone who loved massage chairs.
And so, Theodore Brookstone Karabotsos, in accordance with what we think your bankruptcy wishes might have been, we commit the following bulleted list of overpriced, dumb, and yet delightfully fun gadgets to archives of the internet.
