I don’t think you have to be a model to use it, but I’m not entirely
sure.

You probably do if you want one of the pink ones.

"IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The AlphaGrip may not be ergonomic" it says
here.

You know what’s weird? It claims to be "Enhanced QWERTY", and sure
enough, if you squint at the buttons, it still is kind-of QWERTY,
which itself is thoroughly unergonomic. What’s all that about?

I think the rationale is that using this device won’t hurt your
ability to use a regular QWERTY keyboard, which is something that has
plagued users of other alternative input schemes such as the dvorak
keyboard layout.

The wired jock strap is coming soon, don’t worry.

Talking about Wired, they have someone who writes about (please
delete this message immediately if you’re under age in the
jurisdiction of your residence) "teledildonics". You may want to look
that up. Or not.

As for QWERTY not being ergonomic, I’m not sure where Nick’s coming
from on that. Sholes’ invention was (despite some legend to the
contrary) designed to allow people to type faster with the hardware
of the day, and his design achieved what it set out to do. What’s
wrong with that? I learned to touch type when I was too young to read
Regina Lynn (and before she was born, for good measure). One of the
most useful skills I ever learned.
