My stinky BlackJack

This Samsung BlackJack just smells.

My Samsung BlackJack stinks. But it's not what you might be thinking. It's not that it's poor quality, but rather it really smells bad. I'm currently testing a BlackJack to include in a coming CNET Prizefight with the RIM BlackBerry 8800. Whoever had the device before me must have been a chain smoker because this thing reeks like an ashtray. I've never seen a cell phone retain stench so acutely. Perhaps the rubberized covering on the back side is to blame? I'm just not sure. But whatever the reason, it smells like a bar in Paris.

Why do so many of us still buy cars with off-road abilities?

Cities are full of cars like the Subaru XV that can drive off-road but will never see any challenging terrain. What drives us to buy cars with these abilities when we don't really need them most of the time?
