It's already got your phone in it, and then, to keep it from flopping useless against your thigh all day, you've stuffed the remainder of your overlong headphone cable in there as well, maybe rolled up neatly or wrapped around the phone, but most likely just jammed in…
It's okay to have a Pavlovian response to your ringtone. That's what your phone conditions you to do. Sure, you might not be salivating, but your pulse quickens and you reach for your phone.

This photograph was taken at the SFMTA Customer Service Center, the 7th level of bureaucratic hell. I was working there, but I don't work there, feel me? I was using Clear's Mobile USB WiMax Adapter. Mobile connection dongles aren't particularly new; hell, 4G mobile adapters aren't even new. But six months ago the…
In the last 30 days, I've easily discovered more great new music than I have in the last decade, and have listened to the iTunes equivalent of at least $700 in music for the cost of a CD.
Using touchscreens in the car can be such a hassle, because even if you put them in a dash or windshield mount where they're safely in your line of sight, they still wiggle around too much. Or they did.
CES is like Ninja Warrior for bloggers, a vast, obstacle-strewn arena where cell service is rare and usable internet is as uncommon as good hygiene. To stay in touch, Gizmodo relied on GroupMe. It worked and then some.
Biddle's got the classics, GoreTex-ified. Mascari has 'em in brown, (iconoclast), and I've got the tall fleecey ones—I hate getting cold ankles. Blam might order a pair. I'm talking about the L.L.Bean Boot: the accidental, unofficial shoe of Gizmodo.
Magic is a singing home.

You're gonna want to either get comfortable or move on, because I'm fixin' to write about 700 words on video pinball. Seriously.
Earlier this year, after almost a decade of exclusively using cellphones, I hooked up a landline and got myself a batphone. It's been fantastic.
Heirlooms are significant objects—often jewelry or prized items—passed through generations. But as our priorities in life change, will our choices of heirlooms as well? Will I find myself entrusting an original Game Boy to my child one day?
Forget everything you ever thought you knew about waffles. Because Lolly, a waffle maker that produces 9.4-inch waffle cones on a stick, has changed everything. Can I interest you in a wafflesicle? Of course I can.
What was my Lifechanger? Hmmmm...iPhone? iPad? Macbook Pro? Let's dig back a little deeper…Airplane? The1MB original-style Mac (with external 20 MB hard disk), on which I wrote my Ph.D. thesis? Radio Shack TRS-80? Nope, it was a coffee maker!
