Yes! I cropped badly so I missed the key for shopping. Even Hang Up is making a return these days!

I’m guessing it’s not one press pizza, though. :·)

Except it wasn't so much "we" as "some people who went out of business trying to sell a subsidized dumbed-down machine for people who didn't know what the internet was"...

I miss my iOpener sometimes. Also is that an Extreme Networks switch underneath?

This computer may not have a pizza key, but it does have one for π! Beautiful machine.

I interviewed one of the people who worked on this! Plus I bought that keyboard recently for $1.

I am planning to wire it up so that it does what everyone think it did originally – just order a pizza after pressing, without any confirmation. It should be fun to then try to write something on it, and fret an accidental order.
