THE PLANK JANUARY 8, 2008

Electric Boogaloo

For the loved one who has everything:

Today at CES, Taser International introduced the Taser MPH -- the first combination hand-held music player and Taser. 

The player, which has a 1-GB capacity that can hold about 150 songs,
is embedded in a holster that slips on your belt. Feel the need to zap
someone and you can unholster the Taser, use the built-in laser pointer
to aim, and blam -- a couple of darts carrying 50,000 volts hits your
victim.

And you don't have to miss a beat.

Personally, I'm holding out for a cell phone that has pepper spray.
