Probably not. MissyD would pull "her" powerpack sooner or later.... sooner.
 
I'd like some kind of electronic "voodoo doll" device that I could do 'things' to the advertising guy who came up with these lame commercials. Same goes for the one who came up with the lame reality shows.

Do you know, I FOUND one of those old strainers and Beloved and I still refer to it as the "Calling All Cars" strainer. LOL
 
So I can completely understand your "Walkie-talkie!"
 
My mom still has one of those. The same one we had when I was a kid AAMOF.
 
I've got one too, but it's a little bigger.
 
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I remember one cool gadget I saw in a catalog once.... it was a universal TV remote that you wore on your wrist like a watch.
 
Ergo, if you had one, you could go to other peoples' houses & screw around with their TV & they'd never know what was going on.
 
Change channels in the middle of a show.... mute the volume.... all while sitting with your hands innocently folded across your lap. Big%20smile

I've got a watch slightly bigger than that, which has a fully functional Geiger Counter inside it. Right out of James Bond! Cool

The smallest cell phones are almost that small. The biggest holdback is the necessary battery. What the cartoonists never showed on those pics of Dick Tracy is the huge battery pack tucked into an inside pocket of his trench coat, with the wire running up his sleeve, to power the wrist radio.

Don't those little Bluetooth things have batteries too?
 
They seem to have overcome that problem.

Here's one that a bit on the practical side. A Phone Answering Machine with MULTIPLE SPEAKERS. If you are a "Call Screener" and you happen to be in a Room when the Phone Rings, but is too far to hear the message on the Main Unit, you'd still be able to hear it and decide to answer or not answer!
Where will you be when the lights go out on August 21st?

My phone has that, Reg. A voice comes on and says "Call from (either a name or) Call from OUT OF AREA and we know not to bother picking up. It's pretty loud so I can hea it from a few vantage points in my house - from the phone base and the phone itself.

I heard Walmart has marked them down to less than half of what they were previously.
 
The speculation is that they are getting ready to release the new generation of them like the one that was "accidentally" left in a bar, making international headlines.
 
Speaking of which, I finally figured out how to download music & pictures to my iPod Touch, which is basically an iPhone without the phone & camera.

I usually have an awful visual memory, and that includes things I saw in dreams. So that would be a great thing.


That would be awesome until someone records your more embarrassing dreams and then tries to play them somewhere like the internet.Dead

Ouch!!!!
 
That would suck.
 
Especially with those "naked in public" dreams.

How about a device that would "beam you into" the TV?  Imagine doing this while while watching porn DVDs!  You could actually JOIN the fun! Or punch the lights out of some people in those STUPID commercials you hate!
