P2P traffic jam buster.

Israeli company Cellint has come up with a product called TrafficSense which collates info from driver’s mobile phones, and combines it with speed data, travel time and stuff to provide real time traffic jam updates. The technology will effectively track multiple handsets in a given area to warn drivers of traffic jams up ahead, without the need to install expensive sensors en route. Yay, we say.  “Many traffic jams develop from nothing to a major jam in a few minutes – so a real…

Cell phone lenses.

Add-On Cell Phone Lenses. Now here’s the thing. After-market add-on lenses for PDAs, cell phones and the like are definitely a cool idea. No doubt. But why oh why, in the name of all that’s David Bailey have the guys decided to split the product packs up into two sets – one with macro and two other useless types, and the other pack with tele and two other useless versions? Everyone knows that tele and macro belong together, don’t they? Especially at $15.00 a…

The Flamingo Earphone.

The Cellpoint Flamingo. The folks at Cellpoint are claiming that their new Bluetooth wireless headset with ‘patented Earclick’ is one of the lightest and most comfortable of its kind on the market. Well at 11g, it’s certainly light, and it’s got to be more comfortable than the abominable BlueSpoon I checked out a while ago (and which I never got working despite the company sending me two of the things). So maybe it’s worth a look-see?  The Flamingo’s lightweight and…

Google Send to Phone.

The Google Send to Phone Firefox Extension is jolly clever, peeps. It allows you to copy, paste and send snippets of web information direct from the browser to your mobile phone via SMS. So you could send yourself a phone number, address or driving instructions (presumably less than 160 characters). US only at the moment, but will go international if popular enough, and it’s free to send. Yep, it’s yet another cool app.  Google Send to Phone for Firefox is an…

It’s a bag, lady.

Aquatalk. Dude, you call it a waterproof case for mobile phones, we call it a plastic bag. You know, like you get down the corner store? You say it’ll let us use our handsets safely in the bath. We say bubbles. You say we can talk through the thin plastic membrane. We say you’re talking through yours. Yellow, blue, pink, yada, yada, yada. $5.00 each. Right! [Via Odd Things]
