CES 2008: Odd gear out

My favorite thing to do at the show is hit the odd retailers who sell the crazy junk we all know and love from Sharper Image, Brookstone, et al along with the stuff that ends up in close-outs. Take this weird blue phone, for example. It’s a mini phone! It’s blue! Doug loves it.

Below find a Crosley (??) commemorative radio with CD player and iPod dock — just like Lindbergh had — and then there’s this ball-shaped iPod dock for the kids branded b2. It’s booths like this one that remind us that CES is basically just a trade fair and that we could just as easily be talking about cattle, wheat, or porn.
