Remembering iPods

Nobody talks about their iPods anymore. What gives?

The iPhone stole all their thunder. Bitch!

I don’t even see people out with iPods anymore. They just sit at home and I guess go to the gym once in a while. We should have iPod day once a week, where everyone goes out with just their iPod, no ipHOnes allowed. It’s crazy to think listening to just an iPod is an old thing. Times change pret-ty fast, folks. Next thing you know, iPhones are non-existent and we video call everyone. Bah!

Amazing: Waterproof your cellphone with Liquipel

Waterproof Phone coating, and the future, have arrived.

WHAAAAT!!!! This is every drunk college kids dream. No more late night, bathroom drops in the toilets my friends. No more frat guys dropping your phone into a vat of beer and pee.

Liquipel is a nano coating that covers every part of your cellphone, inside and outside, like a sealant instead of a bulky waterproof cover. They describe it as:

…a revolutionary process that applies a waterproof coating to your electronic devices to protect them in the event of accidental exposure to liquids. It is not visible to the human eye, virtually undetectable and Liquipel will not compromise the look, feel, and performance of your electronics.

Liquipel penetrates the entire device as a whole, including all of the vital components inside and out to provide optimal protection against accidental contact with liquids.

AH-MAZ-ING. Innovative. It costs about $60 to get done to your phone, and you have to send it in to the company. But really, I think that’s $60 well spent over the risk of dropping your phone in a puddle, toilet or some other electronics-threatening body of water.

You guys, we’ve entered the future. Seriously, every time something amazing like this comes out, I feel like we’ve entered the future. 3D printers, anyone?

Wow. Can you imagine carting that around in your purse? Cue hipsters: "Do you have a phone jack? I need to call someone." Photo via mashable.com

 The first iPhone was actually made in 1983 as a landline with a touchscreen. It was designed by Hartmut Esslinger who also played a hand in constructing Apple’s first portable computer. NEAT!
