A digital television that fits in your pocket? Good idea.

15 December 2008

I've had plenty of great ideas for products in my time. My best was probably Wine For One. As a young gentlemen in my late teens, I was troubled by the bottles of vino I never quite managed to finish. I therefore proposed to establish a business that sold a selection of fine wines in 500ml bottles, meaning one could enjoy a bottle by themselves and save money, too.

Now in my thirties, I realise that once the novelty of working for a living wears off, the debt's mounted up and  any aspirations you once had have been trampled to death, then polishing off a couple of bottle of red a night is straight forward enough. And who wants to be seen buying a wine for one? You might tattoo LONELY on your forehead and buy food for the cats while you're at it.

Anyway, here's another idea, but this is a really a good one. A portable telly. No, stay with me. This is a digital television, complete with a 4.3 inch screen, built-in DVB-T tuner and antenna plus FM radio, SD card slot and USB port. Hooray!

An ultra-slim, ultra-cool, Freeview digital television that fits in your goddamn pocket. Sounds brilliant and far more likely to succeed that some dozy twat's idea to make wine bottles smaller. Fancy one? £140 please squire - head over to Firebox for yours.

    Doesn't the Nokia N96 do all this anyway?

    Instead of a tiny portable telly, I'd prefer a world where everything was brought to me on my sofa, in front of my huge TV.
