Everywhere touch screens.
Currently in front of me are two phones, a tablet, and a touch screen laptop. I’m surrounded by glowing rectangles that want to interact with my hands.
In a perfect world, my fingers would be inert sticks; but unfortunately, I’m a gross mammal–and all of the screens in front of me are covered in smudges and streaks.
Enter the Sidekick.
The Sidekick has a novel flip out design.
Once the cover is removed, a simple spring swings the cleaning pad into place. It’s cute, though it does make the whole assembly just a little thicker than it probably needs to be.
Using it is simple enough: remove the cap, wipe your screen with it, replace cap, use tablet.
I got some curious looks using one at a coffee shop. No one curious enough to ask me about it, but a few of those “dog hears something odd” head tilts were thrown in my general direction.
It’s certainly a more dignified way of cleaning your screen than rubbing it on your shirt, so just for that, I can easily recommend the Sidekick.
Beeteedubs, you REALLY don’t want to know what I had to do to get my Touchpad that smudgy… What I do for you guys…
The Sidekick retails for $19.95.
