    Use your blackberry in the rain?

    April showers could continue clear through May, and your Burberry and your BlackBerry are already waterlogged.

    Perhaps you need . . . a Nubrella.

    Priced at $59.94 and looking like a leftover set piece from "Bubble Boy," the hands-free umbrella is marketed as the ultimate tool for the modern rained-upon. Folded up, it's the size and shape of an Olympic regulation archery bow. Then you pop it . . . right . . . er, wait, how does this thing -- ah well, you can always log onto http://www.nubrella.com for a tutorial, and get that baby open in five simple steps.

    Five? But my current umbrella opens in --

    But is your current umbrella the ultimate tool for the modern rained-upon? "Hands-free changes the whole game," says Nubrella inventor Alan Kaufman, who was running Cingular outlets in Manhattan when watching his wired and wet customers struggle provided inspiration.

    Think of the 21st-century possibilities. No more one-handed texting. No more rummaging for the ringing PDA while trying to keep the groceries off of wet pavement. Chatting, waving, toting, umbrella-holding: four tasks that were never before simultaneously possible.

    Now that's pretty cool. Especially for me coming from one of the rainiest cities in the US.
    Annual rainfall: 126 inches

    .. They can't be serious. If I see anyone "wearing" one of these on the street.. I will point and laugh. And not just a cheesy little chuckle.

    No, no. I will guffaw.

    cool this just popped in my head while reading this-maybe rim could make a rugged water resistant or proof if possible blackberry series for the non-office on-site engineer or for the party animal!But maybe they don't want to because they'll lose all kinds money with customers specially the clumsy ones that are always buying new replacements!

    Wow, this goes beyond the normalcy of Crackberry addict, It's a tad hard to see through the plastic and your trying to text and/or IM at the same time. I can see it now: Man or Woman hit by bus tryin to IM a friend with a happy face symbol. Berry addicts already have a hard time lifting their head to speak let alone paying attention in the rain, lol...
