Even cell phones need a hug sometimes

As a general rule, I am morally opposed to pink gadgets, but I might have to make an exception for the Big Hug Adhesive Cell Phone Holder.

This little dose of silliness cradles the phone in its giant pink/purple rubber palms and could prove quite handy (pun apologetically intended) for those of us who fritter away too much time hunting down our misplaced phones. The plastic holder has an adhesive backing that can stick to any surface (windshield, dashboard, desk, wall, back, forehead), and it promises to protect your phone from scratches while it's keeping it in your sights.

The gadget sells online for $3.99, with a $5 shipping fee, weighs just less than 3 ounces, and measures about 3.9 inches by 1.5 inches by three-quarters of an inch. Alas, that means some thicker phones, like PDAs and smartphones, will have to look for affection elsewhere.
