Give me the sock!! Socks don't suck!! 

A prediction for 2014 - the return of the phone sock. Maybe not in shiny grey, though....

Re: gifted The one design flaw with the wi-fi hat is ... the wearer can't see when the signal beacon is activated. So you have to do a pretend selfie to see if your hat is lit. Or carry around a mirror. Now if it were a wristband...

Haptic gloves I know this will comes as a surprise, but I'm not much of a Hello Kitty guy. Do they have haptic gloves with sports themes--maybe Chicago Bulls red and black with Michael Jordan's No. 23? Or (nerd alert) maybe a Green Lantern theme, with a graphic of the Lantern's ring on one of the fingers?

Re: Give me the sock!! Phone mittens so you don't drop the device?

Re: Haptic gloves Couldn't find them, suspect they must be out there. How about these "Streets of New York" gloves?
