Ask a Gadgette
Dear Gadgettes! I seek some of your infinite knowledge of tools!

Does owning a Gold Dolce & Gabbana MOTORAZR make me a tool? I do enjoy showing it off, especially when with friends and family, but keeping in mind, I didn't purchase this but in fact found it in the trash, What with my friend having a Pink version, I used her spare battery and flashed the device to a working state. Does owning one of these give me the status of "Tool"???

Love the show! (Welcome back molly!)

Cheers,

NKP, (Australia)

Hey ladies (and one dude):

Remember The Alien Abduction Lamp you guys talked about a loooong time ago (I’m talking from way back–this was pre-Jason, and I think Molly was still on maternity leave) in "The 'is it art?' Episode"? And how it was only a proof-of-concept and not actually for sale? Well good news because now it’s for sale for realz, bee-yotches!

I signed up for the e-mail notifications from the designer, Lasse Klein, ages ago and finally got the news I’d been waiting over 3 years for: the lamp has landed. And it still comes with the adorable little cow abductee from those concept shots way back when. Woohoo! You might need to be quick, though, because apparently they’re only making 2000 of them.

I already reserved mine.

Love the show!

Jackie
