We don't want to get into it here, but we've never been fans of using cell phones while driving. Yet if people must do their yakking on the road, this product at least makes it easier to go hands-free.

The "miniUFO" from Finland's Iqua is a lightweight wireless device that can be clipped to your sun visor and work with your mobile phone, PDA or other Bluetooth-connected gadgets. "With special concerns on driving safety and user convenience, the product is designed to be of easy to use with four simple operation buttons," Iqua's site says of the $76 miniUFO.

And because it's portable, you can take it with you after parking to continue the conversation. Then, instead of annoying other drivers, you can irritate people on foot.

Be careful when replacing parts. Poorly made cables can fry a laptop, and iPhones will stop working if the Touch ID button is repaired outside of Apple. It's a lesson some are learning the hard way.
