On the Fly

Now here’s another high tech toy you can add to your collection. will be offering the FLY pentop computer starting October 16. The FLY pentop computer takes scheduling, math, and music in a whole new direction. The FLY pentop computer has a built-in processor, voice capabilities, and an optical scanner.

Use a specially made paper to calculate math problems, schedule appointments record music, etc … The set includes a FLY pentop computer, red carrying case, FLY launch pad guide, earphones, 17 games, 35 pages of FLY paper, 3 interactive FLY-FX cards, interactive map, red face plate and one AAA battery. is offering FLY add-ons such as: software cartridges, games, speakers and more (each sold separately). The Red model you see above is exclusive to Target® stores.


  • cannot believe someone would have an I love Target website. This company has a horrible human rights record. My husband worked for their distribution center for 5 years, and finally quit after being treated like so much disposable garbage.
    Cases in Point
    1. Every employee is required to see the company nurse before they can leave work for illness. However the company nurse only works Monday-Friday, with no weekends. There is no one that a person working the weekend shift can see to have an excused leave from work. I don't think it would scratch Target's profit margin to employ an additional nurse for the weekend shift.
    2. At the particular plant my husband worked at in Cedar Falls, Iowa there was a water main break. There was not running water for drinking or sanitation for more than 6 hours, yet Target forced its' employees to keep working in 90 degree weather. I was appalled this could even happen in the United States.
    3. They do not allow any kind of personal correspondence within their buildings or parking lot, for fear of organized labor unions(which they desperately need). This means if you want to give your co-worker Sally a sympathy card because her kid died, YOU CAN'T. Unless you want to be fired.
    4. At the retail stores, the starting wage for employees is $6.15. A person could not buy health insurance AND feed himself Top Ramen with this wage. But at least you can buy your plastic Isaac Mizrahi shoes for 10 cents cheaper.
    And these are just minor incidences I can recall from my husband's experience with the "Bullseye".
    So please, find another company to worship. Companies like this are bad for the American work force. And I realize most of you won't give a damn, because you and your husband both work white-collar jobs, but some don't. And you support a business that are treating your fellow Americans like trash.
