Pressy Instant Function Android Button

$18.44 - $19.99 from Amazon »

I. LOVE. BUTTONS. And one of the 17 reasons I refuse to convert from a flip to a smartphone is the latter's infuriating lack thereof. A touchscreen? Really? Maybe if my fingers had stopped growing at the age of 6, but...

iblazr LED Flash for Smartphones

$29.99 from Amazon »

Is iblazr truly the "first fully synchronized flash for iPhone, iPad, and Android"? I don't know, what do I look like, a fact checker? Someone who takes the time to verify the information he relays? I'll tell you one...

Mr. Ghost Smartphone EMF Detector

myType Pocket Keyboard

$59.95 from myType »

I'll tell you one thing I like is buttons. This touch screen crapola, even when it's all cool and laser virtual keyboard-y and keychain-sized, is unacceptable to my manly and powerful hands. They just do not like typing...

Mutator Global iPhone Silencer

$16 - $28 from Mutator »

People seem to love their iPhones. Almost as much as they seem to love to bitch about them. Damn autocorrect, good-for-nothing maps, battery life of a gallon of mocha almond fudge in the hands of pregnant woman, innate...

Trigger iPhone Case

Sold Out from Amazon »

This Trigger iPhone 5 case looks heavy. Like I'll either develop a disproportionately muscular right arm from lifting and holding it to my ear, or I'll finally succumb to one of those GD earpieces I hate so much* because...

Rhino Shield for Smartphones

$24.95 from Amazon »

Although the aesthetics of the shattered screen look are starting to grow on me, I do prefer the functionality of smartphones whose parts are intact. And the very nature of touchscreens--that to work as intended they...

iPhone 3D Movie Viewer

Sold Out from Amazon »

Edible Rice Cracker iPhone Case

$84.99 from Gizmine »

Usually when I spend $84.99 on a snack, I want it to be one that is devoid of nutritional value. Gluten-free, of course. And highly unsatisfying. Bonus points if I can temporarily store my iPhone in it. Well hello there...

Hand Crank Phone Battery Backup

$60 from eton »

You know what kids these days need? Manual labor. Because they're lazy. Also, cellphone battery backups. Because they're irresponsible. Also, greasy, acne-ridden pubescent teen years. Because they're a bunch of little...

When to Bolt & Pee App

FREE - $0.99 from RunPee.com »

CB Radio iPhone Handset

iStash

$9.95 from MTMi »

Pinball Magic for iPhone

$34.95 from Amazon »

PhoneSoap - Smartphone Sanitizer & Charger
