Stupid or Stupendous?

I just got a press release about the Mobigrip. What's a Mobigrip? It's a little round item with adhesive attached to a loop. You attach the round thing to a cell phone or some other hand-held device and put the loop around your finger. Voila! You won't drop and break that $500 iPhone!

The idea may have come from the Wii controller. Remember when players would get so excited bowling or boxing that the controllers would fly out of their hands and into the TV screen? But I'm not sure how many of us will loop this beauty around our fingers every time we pick up the phone.

If you think this idea is dy-no-mite, click here.
