TT #31: I'll Take the Lump of Coal

5 Nov 2008

When Tech and Fashion Go Horribly Wrong
Or Items Not On My Christmas List

Number 1
May this Nintendo DS rest in peace.

Number 2
Those polka dots are really rubies. Yes, RUBIES.

Number 3
These headphones might be on the Christmas wish list of a certain governor who can see Russia from her state.

Number 4
I guess theft-deterrent wasn’t on the design objectives list.

Number 5
Part of me is dying inside to see a notebook computer so deformed.

Number 6
When is gold leaf ever a good idea?

Number 7
It’s actually uglier than the monstrosities that came out in the early 80s.

Number 8
Like the vehicles, overpriced toys for people who don’t actually need them.ย  Don’t these people know Hummer is a dying brand?

Number 9
My binder in junior high didn’t look this horrific.

Number 10
80s leg warmers died for these headphones!!

Number 11
Apple doesn’t make sunglasses, so Oakley shouldn’t make MP3 players.

Number 12
It’s like an 80s Japanese-inspired TV from IKEA.ย  The sad part is not even IKEA would market this monstrosities.

Number 13
I’m so loving my little clam shell cell phone right now.

    @Adelle – That’s just cruel and unusual.

    This is really hilarious. It’s funny how things change – come in and out of fashion.

  6. 5 Nov 2008 5:45 PM

    Ooh, great list! I can’t believe people would design — let alone buy — that stuff!

  17. 6 Nov 2008 6:22 AM

    Oh my gosh, those all just look so…awful and fake! I’m glad they aren’t on your Christmas list ๐Ÿ˜‰ Happy TT!
