With hundreds of thousands of apps available now, and more coming online every day, there is an app for everything. But is this something that anyone really needs?
Reuters reports on a new app that helps you sort your socks.
Yes, it's true. For only $189, you get a sorter device that wirelessly hooks to an iPhone through Bluetooth. It lets you sort through your socks to see which ones match up -- left with right. (Until I read this, I never realized there were different socks for the left and right feet.)
By the way, the sorter comes with ten pairs of men's black socks. (Oh, now that makes the $189 price a bargain, doesn't it?) The socks have electronic chips embedded that keep track of when you bought them, how many times they've been worn and washed, when you last wore them, and so much more important information that any well-dressed man must absolutely have in order to look his best. The app even tells you when the sock needs to be replaced. I guess that will supplant my own high-tech method of knowing when I need new socks -- like when I see my toe starting to peek out from a hole.
Now that this app has been introduced, maybe those app developers can get onto some more important projects like giving advance warning for when the toilet paper roll needs to be changed or when the milk in the fridge is about to go bad.
