    Well, there will be framed and signed prints of my "Life of an AppleInsider Thread", available in English, Spanish and German.

    Also, there will be groverat vs. ShawnPatrickJoyce action figures, featuring Argue-X-Treme pre-recorded phrases (snippets of the U.S. Constitution, statements made by a drunken George W. Bush 18 years ago, etc.) and Brain-O-Matic judo chopping action (batteries not included).

    There is also a poster-sized "AppleInsider Family Tree" illustration, linking each member to the other, based on sexual orientation, political beliefs, beer preference, education level, etc. Great for quickly identifying the good ones from the bad ones.

    Oh, and probably some AI coffee mugs and guitar picks too, last I heard.

    they should have mugs made of peoples iChat icons....having a mug with brad's or fellowship's scary iChat icon would be better at waking me up in the morning than the coffee inside it.... at second thought, just opening a cupboard and seeing that looking back at me could do permanent damage...could easily turn both my daughters gay (not that there is anything wrong with that )....nahhh, just stick with t-shirts that say: "I "heart" AI" , or "Troll" on the front and "And loving it" on the back, or "Apple Apologist" on the front with "Feel the RDF" on the back, or "It's not my fault" (on the front) and then "Fireside Chat made me Kill that Idiot" (on the back)....g

    Actually, paul, I think it's groverat v. AI. I will be fitted with devil horns and a pitchfork and you will be able to purchase up to 50 different other action figures to do battle with me Rock'Em-Sock'Em-Robots style.

    if everybody purchases a t-shirt, we could over expose the mb and face commercialisation!!!

    whatever would happen then....

    come on, t-shirts are lame. Who in there right mind would really wear a plain ol' t-shirt? maybe for sleeping in. We should get more creative, maybe a mouse pad that says like "Muscle Memory. . ." but t-shirts and mugs?

    Don't forget that there are limited numbers and kinds of products that a free Cafe Press store can make. Last I recall, that's just what Jon was setting up.

    Cafepress is ugly...

    Someone needs to code us a store of our own.

    And who do you propose will MAKE the merchandise, Spart?

    That doesn't exactly sound like a simple or cheap endeavor.
