Scrumptious telephony

While discussing the problems we have been having with one of our cell phones, and how we would dispose of the old one, my wife came up with a great idea.

"Why don't they make edible phones? When you are done with it, you simply eat it!"

The more I thought about it, the more it made sense. It's not an impossible goal, although incredibly difficult. There are organic materials out there that do just about everything required - substrates, masking, semi-conductors, phosphorescents, etc. etc.

It might take a while to get the average cell phone to under several pounds of weight, and leaving it in the sun might be a problem, but then there are other benefits: no need to worry about all that personal data on your PDA - a little concentrated hydrochloric in your GI tract would take care of it permanently.

The pathetically obvious advertising campaign for LG's "Chocolate" series telephones (1, 2) would certainly make more sense.

This is David from American Legends, I do read the blog, I just use a general comment to ask for a link exchange. Recently I have been trying to get a lot of link exchanges to blogs that I think are doing a good job and look good. You do a great job in writing for your blog and the blog has a nice look to it.
