This had me laughing -- some of them particularly painted seriously funny
pictures in my head ("forehead- or chin-mounted iPhone holster"? Genius!).
Unless you tell me I shouldn't, I'm sorely tempted to send this (complete
with your name, to give you due credit) to some tech friends for their
gratification. I can't promise you it won't end up as one of those e-mail

If you'd rather not be famous, or if you choose to exercise your full
copyright, please warn me off before I click "forward".

Actually, I can't see how (9) wasn't part of the launch, as bumper stickers,
T-shirts, coffee mugs, baseball caps, the whole thing. King Steven must be

One more thing: doesn't "iScarf" imply something different? :)

Anyway, let me know, I really want to pass this on to some people.
