Souping Up Your Cell Phone
from the the-phone-after-market dept
An amusing article in the NY Times (yes, amazingly, they still require registration) about people who put add-ons on their mobile phones. What started with just faceplates and ringtones has grown into quite an industry. I still haven’t seen anyone mess with any phones other than Nokias, but it’s apparently a big deal. Nokia is even suing companies that make parts for their phones. They compare the practice to souping up cars, but admit that often it can hurt performance on the cell phone.

What planet do you live on where you think this is news? There have been shops all over the civilised world selling this stuff for years. Oh, I forgot, you’re in the USA.
Re: What planet?
I’ve seen the shops, but the NY Times was reporting on the fact that it’s “become an industry” which I thought was amusing…
