How to lose friends and alienate people - go hands-free

12 January 2009

Want to use your mobile hands-free, but simply can't think of the most ridiculous solution? Refuse to consider Bluetooth on the basis you don't want to "look a dick"? Introducing the Cell-Mate, the 20th century solution to a 21st century problem:

Because everyone has probably thought of clamping a phone to their heads at some point, but nobody would ever have the sheer balls to try and sell the idea.

The website does point out the real upside; there's no loss of reception as there might be with Bluetooth. Um, possibly, but how you answer it when a call comes in? Or avoid going deaf when the handset rings? And do you drive around wearing it in case you get a call, or do you put it on once you get a call? In which case, isn't donning the most cumbersome headgear since John Hurt played the Elephant Man going to cause more of a driving hazard?

    Why don't you just glue the feckin' thing to your sweed?

    Or use the handsfree kit supplied with the iphone. Maybe bogg standard but works.
