Everybody needs a chess set, right? Hell yeah! So why not have one that’s USB powered? Brilliant! Just think you, yes you, can have a chess set that you can roll up and take with you to that house party you’re going to this weekend. Break it out, plug it into the USB port on the computer that is SURE to be in the middle of the dance floor, set it up, and challenge any fool who dares to try to bring it you. It’s perfect. Or if you want to get away from folks and have a “private” game of strip chess with that special someone (or yourself if like yourself that much. and you should) near the computer upstairs in the office, do it. The world is your oyster with this:
Personally, as the article says, if you are into chess (it’s a good game), there are other easier ways to go about it. I present to you my personal choices:
Let Grandmaster (not in the rap sense, but the actual sense) Maurice Ashley teach you. If you can find it, there is a pretty good CD-Rom game that can teach you. It is also by him. Not saying that I have this, mind you, but it is good.(*ahem*) So I hear.
Teach your children, too.
And Windows Vista will have it automatically when it ships, not that anyone cares. Don’t ask me how I know this.
