Their past research has shown that parrots - with their prodigious intelligence, high sociability and singular physical capabilities - are uniquely poised to benefit from touchscreen technology.

began some time ago. One day when she was about a year and a half old, the parrot whom I have served faithfully since she was hatched, proclaimed, loudly, “I am the bird that rules the world!”. She is now approaching her thirty-first year, and repeats this claim regularly to whomever she meets. However the world, except for a few faithful acolytes like myself, has not yet recognized her dominion. Woe unto us if we continue in our blindness.

Sometimes I regret leaving Boston for my attempt at higher education. I didn't meet anyone who could think 'outside the box' like this in Providence.
