Banksy’s Latest Takes Aim At Cellphone Addiction

Banksy’s latest work sure hits close to home, doesn’t it? The painting was posted to the artist’s website on Monday, and then the original was finally found by a number of fans in Bristol, England, where he allegedly grew up.

Life Dream Status: A Clutch That Charges Your iPhone

Ladies, meet your new favorite accessory: the Mighty Purse. This cute little clutch is equipped with a built-in high-capacity battery that can recharge your smart phone up to 2 times per charge.

They sent a bunch of seeing eye person/distracted texter teams to walk around the city, and filmed the reactions of passersby. It’s pretty funny, but also a little scary–could this be a glimpse into our social media obsessed future? [YouTube via Laughing Squid]

Most yoga classes start out with a request to turn off or silence your cellphones, and a tacit understanding that if you do pull out your wireless device during class, you’re going to get some disapproving looks from the teacher and your classmates.
