Error 404--Not Found

From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:

10.4.5 404 Not Found

The server has not found anything matching the Request-URI. No indication is given of whether the condition is temporary or permanent.

If the server does not wish to make this information available to the client, the status code 403 (Forbidden) can be used instead. The 410 (Gone) status code SHOULD be used if the server knows, through some internally configurable mechanism, that an old resource is permanently unavailable and has no forwarding address.

A Dutch company, Innovalife, offers high-performance latex sheaths that slip over your mobile phone to make them "water dirt mud paint sweat blood snow proof."

The Register talked with the...well, the "inventor" wouldn't be accurate. Let's call him the "adapter."

"The mastermind behind the product, Rogier van Camp, said he was painting a swimming pool in France when the idea hit him. His regular job demanded that he had his mobile with him all the time, but keeping it clean with dirty hands proved almost impossible. "We decided a condom was the solution."

The Website,, even has a helpful diagram to show how the solution actually works, though there's a good chance many readers already know the correct technique.

The collateral images on the site illustrate, with a darkly humorous twist (or darkly twisted humor) of borderline-graphic graphics, the various situations in which one would want to protect your mobile.
