    Sorta Cool, I guess

    Advertisement



    Watching "Killpoint" on Spike TV tonight. The Bank Robbers are trying to escape while negotiating.

    They got one of the computer geek hostages to rig them up with a wireless device that was outside the frequencies monitored by the police.

    Anyone wanna guess what the wireless device is?

    And had a 4 hour battery life...on standby.

    I never saw the model completely, just a quick partial view as the kid hands it to the main bad guy. Looks like its in the 8700ish style.

    Remember from the movie Sixteen Candles when the car phone really was a car phone attached with a cord no less, to the car itself? Oh man we've come so far!! lol

    I see your bag phone and raise you a StarTAC as my first phone. It took me forever to afford this thing and it was well worth it at the time.
