Cult of Accessory

November 29, 2005     category: Stare

We here at Factoids are increasingly dismayed at the ever-expanding array of CRAP available for the care and feeding of your various portable electronica. The iPod is, of course, the biggest culprit, featuring such head-scratching addons as this thousand dollar massage chair, into which you can lowjack and presumably vegetate until potatoes can be harvested from the gratuitous alliteration alert flab of your flaccid flesh.

If you ask us, he looks a little TOO happy.

And this perplexing little rubber suit into which you can slot your iPod and swallows convulsively play with it.

This is what we've come to? The anthropomorphism of our widgets? Are we truly that bored??

See Exhibit B, a beanbag chair for your wait for it cellphone.

Now, we're all for organization, but a comfy cushy chair for your cellphone? We, ourselves, could count the times our cellphone has complained about it's aching feet on exactly NO hands...

All that said, we heartily congratulate the designers of such absurd devices for their unwavering faith in the gullibility of the average consumer. Well done!

Gods help me, if my house were less than 100 years old, that vibrating ipod chair would tempt me. If only it had a bar built into it somewhere...
