Advanced Intelligence

"Let's say you suspect your spouse of having an affair. Instead of accusing he/she of the extracurricular activities, you go out and purchase the Q-Phone and give it to him/her as a gift." So begins an article on InventorSpot, detailing the delights of the latest must-give gift. It continues: "Though it looks like a standard mobile phone-and operates like one as well-the Q-Phone includes software that, once activated, allows you to listen in on any conversation held on it-or around it."

The Q-Phone can be purchased at the aptly-named "Advanced Intelligence Spy Shop" for as little as $790. "Know your spouse's behaviour when you are away" they say. Shipments can be made world-wide.

This product is endorsed by the Solicitors Family Law Association and the Family Law Bar Association. A spokesman for the latter said: "We believe that the Q-Phone will be responsible for a huge increase in our work".

[OK, I lied about the endorsement bit.]


  1. How many people are now glancing down at the Chrimbo present their beloved bought them and feeling sick?
