Service aims to make you more popular

We're not sure whether to admire this as an innovative idea or get depressed over the commentary it makes on society.

For those who want to appear in high social demand, The Popularity Dialer will call your number and initiate a recording designed to elicit a phony dialogue. "Thus, you will be prompted to have a fake conversation and will easily fool those around you," according to the service's site.

We do concede that there are perhaps other, more justifiable uses for The Popularity Dialer--such as getting out of a boring meeting.
