It was a busy week here, and all we ran across worth sharing was a fabulous Joy of Tech comic about devices Facebook could work on and an iPhone case from ThinkGeek that gives an iPhone a flip-out physical keyboard.

Joy of Tech Suggests Facebook Devices -- Our friends at Joy of Tech are on a roll, with this comic suggesting a variety of devices that Facebook is working on.

iPhone Case Doubles as Bluetooth Keyboard -- Though it's disappointingly out of stock until late November, the ThinkGeek TK-421 iPhone Case with Flip-Out Keyboard certainly looks interesting.

The $49.99 case is an original ThinkGeek creation and uses its own built-in, rechargeable battery. Now you can text your reason the next time you're not at your post.
