Sometimes Sneak has a little difficulty in sniffing out the weirdest and most wonderful in the world of technology to report back to you, faithful readers. But some other times, the stories just write themselves. Take this little jewel, for example: Birmingham-based mobile ringtones and games provider Mobile Fun has just announced a new burial service for old mobile phones.
Yes for a small fee, the firm will take your defunct device and send it to Russia – where else – where it will be buried in the Kursk Magnetic Anomaly, the world’s largest iron ore basin. Apparently this will not only minimise the electromagnetic radiation emanating from the phones but also “release any trapped electromagnetic subconscious psyche”. Ahem. And for an even smaller fee, customers of the service can request their soon-to-be deleted mobile to send a farewell text to their new device. Utter madness.
