Multitasking just took an awkward nosedive into the point of no return thanks to a new smartphone holder by Perpetual Kid. 

The self-touted "wildest fantasy" Cell Phone-Holder Party Cup, which is purportedly better than Johnny Depp, a gaggle of kittens, and a giant box of pop tarts combined, essentially lets that weird guy in the corner simultaneously drink and play on his phone.

"Now you can easily take a selfie while checking in on Foursquare, updating your Facebook status and tweeting about how you made and are currently drinking the best drink ever from that recipe you re-pinned last week," wrote Perpetual Kid on its website.

It works like this: Fill the cup-holder with orange juice or whatever liquid treat is around, slip a smartphone into the straw holder, switch into anti-social mode on overdrive, load YouTube/Instagram/Facebook/or some other voyeuristic social network, and find a dark place with nobody around to converse with. 

It's a perfect gadget holder for those with no friends and those who want to look like they have friends. As Perpetual Kid said: "A drinking straw phone stand with a double-walled tumbler underneath? Um... Yes, please!" 

The Cell Phone-Holder Cup is not compatible with dumb phones, measures 5.5-inches tall by 3.5-inches wide, holds 16 ounces of anything and everything, and costs just $8.99 (£5.90). No batteries required.

ee.co.uk - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
