  • Textees

    "Oh, these? They're just my texting thimbles. They're perfect for when I'm texting the opposite sex, probably." (via <a href="" target="_hplink">Textually</a>)

  • Bluetooth/Sunglasses Combo

    Just when we thought Bluetooth headsets make their wearers look like insufferable douchebags, then insufferable douchebags had to go and outdo themselves with this thing. (via <a href="" target="_hplink">Cio</a>)

  • Cell Mate

    At first glance, we see two things problematic about the Cell Mate. The first is that apparently nobody at Cell Mate Headquarters knows about hands-free headsets that come with most cell phones. The second is that it might not be the best strategy to name your product after prisoners. (via <a href="" target="_hplink">Like Cool</a>)

  • Wrist Cell Phone Carrier

    This phone wrist accessory looks like it was specifically engineered to piss off Baby Boomers who think younger folks are too attached to their phones. (via <a href="" target="_hplink">Gizmodiva</a>)

  • TV Hat

    The infamous TV Hat is a device that magnifies an iPhone's screen so you can watch downloaded TV and movies on the go. It was apparently invented by Steve Martin's character in "The Jerk." (via <a href="" target="_hplink">Wired</a>)

  • Banana Cell Phone Holder

    This one is great because it's impractical <i>and</i> will make its users look like a lunatic. One day using this would be a fun novelty. Two days would turn you into a character from "Juno." (via <a href="" target="_hplink">Reddit</a>)

  • iPhone Revolver

    Also known as the "My Second Amendment fetish must extend to all areas of my life" iPhone holder. (via <a href="" target="_hplink"></a>)

  • Cell Phone Holster

    Kill two birds with one stone: carry around your cell phone conveniently, and fulfill your childhood dream of becoming a big strong policeman! Except that you'll probably get killed in the line of duty the first time you reach for your phone in a public place. Also goes perfect with the cell phone revolver!

  • Umbilical Cord Power Charger

    We're sure that this umbilical cord smart phone power charger was predicted by David Lynch at some point. (via <a href="" target="_hplink">Daily Contributor</a>)
