Tech Cool is on its way

2006 is going to be the year of Tech Cool. If you were in doubt, here is the third pillar under the tech throne: after tech celebrities and tech bling, here is tech fashion.

Forget about things like the Scott eVest (motto: "SeV designs functional and fashionable clothing that's so dorky that it's worn by the Secret Service.") or wearable gadgets that make you look like a Borg. No, I'm talking about the TuneBuckle (motto: "iPod Nano meets low rider") and Levi's newly announced iPod-ready jeans, promising us a virtually invisible Nano docking cradle plus a joystick in the key pocket.

Tip for Steve Jobs: make iPod Nanos QR code compatible. Ticket collectors in Singapore and other tech-savvy places will be extremely grateful. Who wouldn't want to hold a scanner in front of a TuneBuckle?
