MacMice ships Danger Phone VoIP handset

updated 09:50 am EDT, Fri October 13, 2006

Danger Phone ships

MacMice today began shipping the Danger Phone, its USB VoIP (Voice over IP) handset. The Danger Phone is a USB VoIP telephone handset that works with Skype or any other VoIP application with support for USB handsets, offering plug-and-play compatibility with both Mac OS X and Windows XP systems. The phone is designed as a simple device that is easy to use, emphasizing durability and ruggedness. MacMice sought to do away with gadgetry, a "fake" display, and "flashing lights," leaving only the core functionality of a VoIP phone with a simple interface. The Danger Phone is available for $30.

    This is a 1st for MacMice

    This is a first for MacMice.. Usually there products look great, but are in actual fact, utter c***. This is different because, it actually looks c***! And no doubt wont break any more traditions and remain c*** to use as well.

    whew.

    Thank goodness they kept the enourmous plug-ugly label.

    Simple interface, eh? Cause everyone knows what "P" means on a phone, and the unmarked up and down buttons are for ??? They're not volume - that's on the side... "Power"? maybe - but the mute button's next to the power light. And no one will be pressing the stick-out-y buttons ramdonly with their cheek, right?

    More stuff from Jack, even though his name's not on it anymore - same florid copy about an unproven piece of plastic, and the company claims it's from "Taiwanesee" - looks like someone forgot to double click "Tennessee" before they started typing "Taiwan"

    No, but...

    it looks like it'd make a great TV remote!

    So it's USB teathered, too? Welcome to the brave new world of *CORD* phones!
