If you're an apartment dweller in Manhattan or San Francisco, you might as well skip this item because it'll probably seem utterly useless. But if you're in any other part of the country--with an abode that's more than a closet-sized studio--this device might actually come in handy.
The "Xlink Cellular Gateway" is a networking hub that lets you take your land-line calls on your mobile phone and vice-versa. That means if you leave your Vertu "Signature Cobra" in your library while retiring to the billiards parlor, you won't miss any important cell calls from the broker.
The $170 Xlink works with up to three mobile handsets as long as they have Bluetooth connections, according to Coolest-Gadgets. And if you misplace your cellie as often as we do, it'll save the cost of getting one of those remote locator devices.
