    By the burning balls of beelzebub....

    That is the stupidest use for technology since that plastic bike you're so hung up about.... :D

    "daring choker"????

    I can see crowds of people falling about laughing.

    Now if Apple came out with it, everyone would talk of the genius of the idea....

    as soon as i saw that all i could think about was the technology being hacked so anyone could change your picture. i picture a guy in a bar talking to a girl he's interested in and his buddies pull a prank and change his picture to some really offensive and then he get's slapped real hard... hahahahaha. :D

    Oooh - finally somewhere "useful" I can display my avatar in public...

    :p


    What next from Nokia?!?

    They'll probably produce a CD of their tacky phone rings, and market it as "Nokia's Greatest Hits"...

    :rolleyes:

    the concept is interesting, but it should at least
    a) look good
    b) play animated gifs

    And it would be virus free because it would be running OSX. Oh, and only the applications would crash, not the OS itself. :)

    Hey, maybe it could play your itune library! Yeah, that's it!

    well at least its not another N-Gage!!!!!!!

    seriously, someone at nokia is tapping some wicked strange segment of the population...phone/game boy device, picture medallion...someone's been polling the star trek convention attendees

    (no offense to star trek fans...but it does seem like a rabid sci-fi geek has taken over nokia for the worst in the past few years.)

    That is the lamest move by Nokia to date. I can really see that becoming the next big thing. :rolleyes:

    I guess I'm no one then. :D That thing looks like a 1960s idea of what someone would wear in 2004.

    Really? I haven't laughed so hard since the mini-iPod was introduced. :p Also, 2 people here at my residence have the N-Gage, and I couldn't help but wonder why Nokia made a phone/gaming device with a 1987 design? And now this. Bousozoku is right when he says it looks like something designed in the 60's to look futuristic. Why not make it look nice, or at least give it a sweet looking chain?

    More likely to be something from Logan's Run.

    They should make that a belt, not a necklage that looks like something a futuristic convict would wear (think control collar. Imagine a belt that, on the buckle, would display a picture you took and you could change it to whatever you want. How awesome would that be?!

    Maybe they thought that there would be sexual side effects. :D

    You totally beat me to it. First thing that popped in my mind when I saw it. Would have been REALLY COOL back in the '70's, but now?!

    "Run, Runner!" Bleeeech!!!

    It'd be like one of those Tamagotchi electronic pets.

    Keep feeding it, and it lives.

    Ha!



    What a piece of crap. Wear that down the pub, you won't come out intact - THAT'S for sure...

    :p

    How come it never fails that when someone posts some kind of technology that's really lame, someone else has to say something like this? :rolleyes:

    Unless you were kidding, then I extend my apologies. Let's face it...Apple wouldn't put out something like this. Give me a break...they have more sense. I mean, com'on, look at the Cube...no, wait, er...look at Pippin...just a sec...scanning...Newton was amazing...uh, hang on....eWorld, yeah, that's it....no, wait.... ;)

    If Apple came out with it would be amazingly useful, play mp3s and your iPhoto library and be a video phone as well, be unutterably cool and cutting edge, and pic up chicks all on it own. :p

    But all of that is true (if Steve says so).
