A St. Louis-based online retailer has found a way to insert itself into the biggest tech scandal of the young decade -- and ensure that nothing like it happens again.
Yesterday website tacticalpants.com
announced that it plans to supply Gray Powell
with a 20-year supply of cargo pants.
Powell is the Apple engineer who famously left his next-generation iPhone in a California beer hall this month. The phone was later sold to tech-site Gizmodo
(which has been promoting ad nauseam
its shady tech scoop ever since).
In a press release yesterday the owner of tacticalpants.com stated that his pants -- with dozens of pockets for guns and/or gadgets -- would all but guarantee that Powell never again misplaces a piece of top-secret technology.
"When I came across this story on Gizmodo, all I could think about was
the tactical pants' cell phone pocket," said Chad Weinman
, CEO of TacticalPants.com. "The pants practically make it
impossible to lose anything because there is a secure pocket for
Weinman adds that he'd like to buy Powell a drink, "but only if he wears his new tactical pants to the bar."
How's that for tact? Or, rather, tactlessness?
There's no losing your phone with these pants! Or so the company claims.
