Nokia 8950910, available from your local dentist

http://www.cnn.com/2002/TECH/ptech/0...hone.tooth.ap/

"Tired of losing your cell phone? Having other people listen in on your conversations? What about all the times you've had to turn it off at public events, or leave it behind while swimming?

"Two British inventors unveiled a prototype of a device Friday that could solve those problems.

"But there's a drawback -- your dentist would have to install it inside one of your molars.

"Unofficially known as the "telephone tooth," the device would allow you to receive phone calls, listen to music, even connect to verbal sites on the Internet without anyone nearby hearing a thing."

Finally! The solution to the "ring of terror": the incessant ringing of cell phones that happens at movies, concerts, sex etc.

In all likelihood, that's already been done, and it works by stimulating your brain directly.



Notice the guy's bandage? There's a brain implant underneath!

I laugh at the day when everyone has a mobile phone and the market for them goes down.


I have the Nokia 8310, its was £300 for me. What a waste of money..
As long as they can ring people and text thats all i want!

Bollocks to the ones with digital cameras and shit like that!!
