Cars have cup holders. Why not cellphone holders?
August 20, 2015
For a lot of people in America, a car is a facet of everyday life. It’s generally not something a lot of people spend their time thinking about in more abstract concepts. Sure, one might think about that annoying squeak or if they have to get gas, but not much more. However, I live in San Francisco and don’t own a car, nor have I for many years. For me, driving a car is something of a rarity and when I do, it’s often rented via zipcar. So each time I’m in a vehicle, I spend more time analyzing the vehicle itself. Today’s thought was a simple one, borne out of basic necessity: why are there cup holders, but not cellphone holders?
Woah, I should get Mom a Samsung Fascinate (Phones for the older folks?)

Nexus S CC-BY-SA-3.0 Luca VolpiNo, I don’t actually have any plans to get my mother a Samsung phone. For those living under a rock (or don’t have cable), that’s the recent tag line from a Verizon commercial. It’s a rather amusing commercial about a dude deciding that he should get his Mom a smart phone so he can send her pictures of his child… a child which doesn’t currently exist… but if it did he would name it Brian. A little odd, though amusing. It has set me to pondering about my own Mother’s need for a new phone and specifically how there are no good phones for the older generation.
