Good new if you happen to have a truck obsession and live in Japan – Taito has a CB radio add-on for your mobile handset.
For the uninitiated, CB (citizen’s band) radio was the scourge of the authorities in the early 80s, with ‘illegal’ wavelengths used for communicating between bedrooms, but only using US trucker-style terms like ‘breaker breaker’, ’10-4′ and other such nonsense. Then it became legal, everyone got bored of it and the sad craze went away.
But if nostalgia for CB is rising within you, these add-ons clip into your mobile phone headset socket, allowing you to communicate with passing truckers and the select few who never gave up on it in the first place. I bet you can’t wait.
