    FIQ (Frequently Imagined Questions)



    Q) That's ***** AWESOME - does it actually work?
    A) F. Yeah!

    Q) Why don't you get your cheap lazy azz down to Rat Shack and do that sh** right?
    A). My cheap/lazy azz will be going to Rat Shack tomorrow for just that. Unless of course, I am feeling to lazy. And only if I have any lunch money left.

    Q) Why don't you just use a ***** Bluetooth headset?
    A) People that talk on these things in public are dorks.

    Q) Wait, isn't talking on a giant orange handset from the 70's in public pretty ***** *dorky?
    A) No, because it's done with a strong sense of irony like large black framed glasses and trucker hats. You wouldn't understand, you are a ****** dork.

    Q) You swear a lot.
    A) That's not really a question, ******! Besides, you started it.

    I prefer making my own (what with being so cheap and all) but they do sell them:

    ....there is even a Bluetooth version....but that's just too fancy for my tastes.

    No idea. But there is at least one other co. out there selling these. I remember seeing it a couple months back - which is what gave me the idea. Try googling retro handset for cell phone .....

    why did you hook up yellow instead of red? yellow is video and red is the right audio channel...

    Will do. If no luck I will just make one myself.

    I also find it funny that home phones are being classed as retro.

    Well, that would be true if I was using an Apple a/v cable. When you use a generic cable - like this one or one that comes with a video camera- with an iPhone or iPod the Red & Yellow have to be swapped. That's just Apple thinking differently - or trying to convince you that you have to spend $50 for an Apple cable....

    Here's an easy fix: use the headphones that came with your iPhone. They have a mic you know. Works great.

    Well most likely because the popular opinion is that you look like a douche wearing one.

    Any self-facilitating media node should insist on TWO Bluetooth headsets...
