Accessorize the accessory

Cell phones are the kind of hardware that you only have one of and don't replace very often. Cell phone straps are an inexpensive way to individualize and stylize your phone, and according to Wired, they are all the rage in Japan.

I ordered the strap above (featuring Japanese character, Gloomy) which, much to my dismay, weighs as much as my phone and creates a bumpy profile when stuffed into my backpocket. Ironically, cell phones are becoming increasingly lightweight, sleek and aerodynamic, while the gadgets we attach to them are cartoonish and cumbersome!
