    FYI, from here - https://justine-haupt.com/rotarycellphone/

    It's clever, but feels like an example of: Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should.

    I can't find the pic, but I saw the same joke, except it was a standard hand piece wired into a regular cell phone giving the speaker and mic functions.

    Anyone remembering the Apple "McWheel" launch from a few years back?

    I can proudly say that I do not believe I have ever owned anything made by the Apple corporation, nor have I now or anytime in the foreseeable future think that I will ever have any compulsion to want to own anything made by apple.
    I probably would never have owned anything associated with Microsoft, had Fortran and IBM managed to truly break into the personal computing market
