Wallet 2.0

There’s a strange linkage between the last few postings: Church, then Collection Plates, and now ... wallets.

This time they even it give the 2.0 moniker. To quote the marketing hype on the product website ...
Meet Wallet 2.0, the original soft wallet with multi-purposes. It looks nothing like a wallet in the first glance, but after you take a good look of it, you will perceive the beauty of this innovative soft wallet.

Just about the size of your normal leather wallet, it holds as much stuffs as you could put in with our patent pending wallet system: different refill sheets of credit cards, bills, I.D., coins, notes, card holder, memory card, etc ... that you could choose from.

Basically, a flexible plastic pocket with five transparent dividers to hold different categories of stuff you normally conceal in the many pockets of your wallet or purse. It does to the wallet what the Filofax did to the paper diary. Updated it … but not beyond recognition.

But then the blurb goes horribly wrong.
Everyday life, traveling, snowboarding, cycling, hiking, night clubbing, dancing, etc… Whether you are going to do, Wallet 2.0 could be your best buddy. With the soft materials, you could put it in your front or back pocket, wear it around your neck, put it in your bags. Wallet 2.0 is not only a normal wallet, but a fashion symbol. It will be you, to define the style of urban accessory trend. Let’s go out for fun with your Wallet 2.0 tonite, should we? One more thing, we at Wallet 2.0 treasure the planet, so 1% of our sales revenue will donate to planet-care non-profit organization.
They’ve even produced a Flash demo – the first time you've needed one of those for a simple wallet! Pricy at $29.95 though. Thanks again to Shiny Shiny and Gizmondo.
