Just into Austin: Hell-bent on making the home phone relevant again, Danish uber-techies Bang & Olufsen have unleashed this ridiculously sleek, 2-line cordless, with up to 100 meters of talk-range and a speakerphone base made with the same audio components and perforated aluminum grill used in the brand's car stereo systems -- creating near face-to-face caliber audio fidelity, unlike your slutty cell phone, who'll blow up anyone.
