Condoms for your phones, anyone?
I really thought it will come to this. Some time back, I read in a newspaper (guess it was a Malaysian daily since I was in Penang that time) that some South African abalone divers are being monitored by the local authorities. So to avoid being captured, they’ll have someone on the lookout that would send them text messages while they’re under the water diving for the shells. The best way to protect their mobile phones underwater was by wrapping them with condoms.
I thought there’s a potentially lucrative business idea in there. Apparently, some Dutch guy already thought of it and calls it Skins Mobile protectors. He’s already planning on shipping them to Britain with packs selling between Â£2.99 to Â£5.99. Pretty cheap, huh?
Now, a guy can go to the store, buys a pack of condoms and tells the cashier it’s for his N95.
