Jawbone designer talks some trash

Limited edition features three irresistible themes: "trash talk, sweet talk, and dirty talk."

There's a good reason that Yves Behar was once crowned "The Brand Wizard": It's true. The Swiss-born designer has proven himself something of a Renaissance man in his profession, finding success in fields as diverse as sports and interior decor, as well as his work on the OLPC XO laptop .

But his name became much more familiar in consumer electronics with his avant-garde design of the popular " Aliph Jawbone " headset, so one can't really fault him for going back to that well for a limited edition. The special models are perhaps most noticeably different for their smooth texture, as opposed to the cheese-grater surface of the originals.

Most appealing, however, are their three themes of "trash talk, sweet talk, and dirty talk," according to Gizmodo. And no Craver could resist citing any product inscribed with "(@#*&!!"--translated or otherwise.
