We're of two minds about this YUBZ contraption ($50). On one hand we like old school things - the hip hop musings of RUN D.M.C., Converse All-Stars, our grannies. But on the other hand it seems slightly ridiculous to hook our cell phones up to a relic of dying technology (even if it is shiny). It is more comfortable to hold a handset between your ear and shoulder than something only slightly bigger than a pack of gum. Then again, we lug enough stuff around all day and don't really need the added weight and hassle of half a phone taking up precious bag space. What do you think dear readers? Is Mr. T's bluetooth a quirky and interesting device or a lame gadget meant only to swathe hipsters in ever more layers of irony?
