Operator, this is Bluetooth calling

Old-fashioned receiver works with Bluetooth

It's a time-worn formula in the retail business, especially when designers run out of ideas: Update an old product and call it retro chic.

ThinkGeek has done just that, with this Bluetooth retro handset, an updated version of the corded model introduced earlier that also works with mobile phones. Why? We have no idea, but it would make a perfect complement to the updated Princess phone in the next room.

After you're done yapping, you can head to a drive-in movie.
