It's amazing what phones can do these days. Surf the web! Play
video! Store 80 kajillion songs! Hit a major-league curveball! Make a
bed with perfect hospital corners! Skin a fugu puffer fish
without leaving any residual poison in the flesh! But of all the
incredible feats of cellphone strength, here's the one we like best:
lowering the prices of older, still-perfectly-good cordless landline
The Uniden 5.8Ghz 4 Handset Digital Expandable Phone
w/Answering Machine can't accomplish any of the wonders elucidated
above. But get this: if you type a certain sequence of numbers on its
keypad and hold the handset to your head, you can talk to someone far
Not to say it lacks what the paperboys call "extrees".
It can also function as an intercom, or as a 2-way radio between
handsets. You can choose from a healthy array of ringtones, melodies,
or ring types. The 5.8GHz signal won't meddle with your home wireless
network. And if four handsets aren't enough, you can add up to six more
(not included). This comes in particularly handy if one of your
roommates is a Hindu deity.
You know, because of all the extra arms.
Sorry. They can't all be gems.
