Know someone who’s a complete Applehead? A total iPhone geek? Maybe it’s you?
Either way and whether you’re willing to admit it or not, a few geeky products have made themselves known recently. We’ve collated some of our favourites. Be warned, these products will not cure an Apple addiction – more than likely, they’ll make it worse.
The iPhone Doormat
A great present for a total Apple geek. If you’ve got a loved one who’s a bit obsessed with all things iPhone then this could be the ideal gift for him/her.
Sadly there doesn’t seem to be any UK-based shops selling this, however you can order it from Meninos who will ship it over from the US.
A word to the wise or the caring, if your loved one really is that obsessed with Apple there’s a chance they’ll try to open the door this way. Keep reminding them how the key works and well, how all things work in the real non i-world.
They’ll get great reception at your next party, suggests Engadget jokingly. Of course it depends on who’s going to your party. Still these earrings are quickly becoming popular with plenty of ebayers and Etsy stores trying to get in on the trend, making their own designs.
The Gadget/iPhone Holster
You’re a long way from being James Bond, although Q might think differently, but this iPhone holster is definitely good for parties, as a joke and yeah, maybe pretending you’re James Bond. Who has to know?
Thisisnext suggests, well that this is going to be the next big thing. Personally I think it’s a great gimmick. I would love one, if only just for shits and giggles. And pretending to be James Bond. Being a girl I guess people would expect me to pretend to be Moneypenny or one of the sexy girls, but that’s just nowhere near as fun. Besides I’m better with the iPhone than my boyfriend.
Yes, this is next.
Weather outside frightful? But you want to use your iPhone? Well don’t worry, Etre Touchy have the solution. They’re not quite fingerless (after all what’s the point of that) and they’re not quite gloves. They’re somewhere inbetween and their purpose is known only to heavy, fanatical iPhone users.
Etre Touchy gloves have made it into a number of publications, including CNN, The Financial Times and The BBC. They’re available to buy online and can be delivered worldwide. iTouch gloves are compatible with both iPhones and iPads, so don’t worry if you have both devices.
Sometimes when you’re having a chat with someone in the real world, it’s nice to be reminded that soon they’ll be gone and you can go back to playing on your iPhone. Oftentimes however, these people just seem to stick around, despite your best intentions to get rid of them.
The good news is, if you’re having a tea or coffee with them, perhaps in your own home, you can now be reminded of your iPhone with these simple coasters. Sure it’s not the same thing, but it’ll just have to do. And you never know, it might pass on a hint, although I doubt it.
They’re also pretty cool btw.
