Online T-shirt seller celebrated last week’s solstice by having a 30% off sale. The discount was enough to tempt me into getting a handset for those long calls I actually have on my iPhone. This probably amplifies my status as a Luddite but c’mon, look at the picture below, my handset is pretty cool!
The thing just works too. It has volume control buttons on the side and its “neck” has the hang-up button. I tried to test it out by calling Somara. Unfortunately I picked a bad time. I think she was hanging up on me intentionally, not because she couldn’t hear me. Jose was my next guinea pig. I may have gotten his voice mail yet he followed up to let me know it worked!
The iPhone cover is ten times cooler and better! It’s more like camouflage against anybody under 25 from stealing my iPhone.
- I wish the brand name of Certron were on it. Anybody around my age remembered those tapes were crap. Thus, a deterrent against the over-25 thieves.
- The middle window should have the visible reels of tape.
- The side where the tape is visible should be colored brown/rust.
Here’s where the contest comes in, if I haven’t lost you by now. While I’ve been showing this off to my fellow Gen Xers (people born between 1965-1980 roughly) and older, we made jokes about lame bands to write on the cover as another defensive measure.
So I put it to you readers to propose the worst band and/or name for me to write down with a Sharpie®. Currently, the strongest suggestion came from a cool guy in the Apple cafeteria…Bread. Lame and it frightens thieves on a low-carb diet! This beats my plan to go with Little River Band who happen to be one of my favorite 10 acts of the Seventies. I just know LRB is ignorantly reviled by the masses. I want to see if anyone can beat the leading recommendation for a bitchin’ prize worth 20 bucks.
