Smoking and mobile phones come together

I usually make the point of only ever smoking a cigarette or cigar on No Smoking Day. It is the principle at stake, dear reader. For the remaining 364 days of the year, however, I avoid the weed. But for those who are less bothered about the state of their lungs or just love to smoke, here is a must-have gadget.

I think if Ian Fleming were alive today, he would make sure 007 had such a case for his Q-branch gadgets and Turkish ciggies (via the always-diverting Boing Boing website).

    Far more Bond-ish is this little gem

    I wonder if the company would be prepared tp do odd jobs? For some time, I’ve been thinking that disguised guns and weapons would be the way to protect yourself, and a cigarette case would be a good disguise for a gun. A single bullet gun, but effective! Any budding ‘Q’s for the average libertarian out there? Why should only James Bond be allowed to protect himself with hidden weapons?

    So it comes down to a race to the finish, will it be electromagnetic radiation from the cellphone or lung cancer that gets you – could be close.

    I love the shooting ‘phone but do you know if it has a built in MP3 player?

  • Well we keep hearing about convergence in telecoms.

    What’s needed now is some drug convergence — simply add a contraceptive to cigarettes in order to reduce underage pregnancy rates.
