No, You Do Not Need a Set of Wi-Fi Cufflinks

Illustration for article titled No, You Do Not Need a Set of Wi-Fi Cufflinks

I've seen novelty cufflinks with all kinds of absurd functionality before, but for the life of me I can't figure out who would ever actually need the ability to create a wireless hotspot while wearing a fancy suit or tuxedo.

At a wedding? A funeral? While being knighted? Even an impeccably dressed secret agent would most certainly have their own custom tools for the job, and those who might find them handy—like IT professionals—probably don't dress with the need for cufflinks.

And while one of the cufflinks can be connected to an online computer to create a wi-fi hotspot, the other one is nothing more than a 2GB flash drive that isn't even wireless. Were you able to wirelessly send files to the other cufflink while wearing it, I could maybe see a justification for their $300 price tag. But you can't, so I just don't get it.

Ummm... why the fuck not?

I don't normally have time to transfer a couple of gigs of files while I'm fishing for my keys, but that doesn't make my current flash drive/keychain any less useful for the times I'm not fumbling in my pocket and do need to copy some stuff.

And French cuffs are awesome. Everyone should own a couple of sets of cufflinks.
