Must-have item for car phone addicts

A gadget for those who spend way to much time talking behind the wheel

If you think you need one of Novomax's "Bluetooth Soundstations," you're spending far too much time on the phone while behind the wheel. According to the product description on its Web site, the car kit "displays caller ID, battery status, phone book downloading, etc." (We can only speculate what the "etc." stands for. Doing laundry?)

It's frightening that some people would find the need to have all this information constantly within their line of sight while they're supposed to have their eyes on the road. And as if that's not bad enough, Gearlog notes that the Soundstation supports two phones simultaneously. That's right, two. File this under the category marked, "Is it just us?"
