Ringtones for the home phone too

Land lines finally get some respect

Some of us don't get out much here at Crave, so we're always appreciative of ways to enjoy life at its fullest as long as it's within a 50-foot radius of the plasma. Take ringtones, for example. We always felt that it was kind of unfair that we couldn't get them on our land line--until we learned of the "Magic Ringtone MP3 Ringer."

This wedge-shaped gizmo can play your favorite tunes when your home phone rings. What we appreciate about it most is its simplicity: All you have to do, according to Red Ferret, is transfer a song from the computer to the magic ringer through a USB connection, then plug the phone into it. Now if it only had a remote.
