If Everyone Jumped: Year-End Roundup of Our Favorite 2010 Oddities

The past 12 months included fabulous trends, dazzling red carpet moments and stunning product innovation, but 2010 was also a great year for the weird. We’ve featured tons of off-beat trends and odd products in our weekly If Everyone Jumped posts this year, including $3,000 T-shirts from Valentino, glow-in-the-dark sunglasses and candles that smell like fast food. With this the last week of 2010, here is a recap of our top five favorites.

Motorola Droid 2 is Almost Here, the Original Goes Free

 Motorola Droid 2 is Almost Here, the Original Goes Free

Tomorrow, Verizon and Motorola are expected to launch the Droid 2 and Droid X.

The next generations expected to have twice the memory and twice the speed (thanks to a faster processor), there are lots of small changes that could make a big difference in performance. Physically, there won’t be much of a difference in the Droid and Droid 2 – the touch pad from the first version is replaced with arrow keys, so is it worth the upgrade?

The Palm Pre Plus, the upgraded version of the supposed iPhone killer is finally making it’s way to the network of the iPhone. The release coming on May 16 comes off as just a bit too late, however. It comes just a month before the official launch of the new iPhone (the one that launched a nasty police raid), which is expected to borrow a few of the Pre Plus’ features.

iPhone Orchestras?!?

iPhone Orchestras?!?

You already use your iPhone to make phone calls, surf the internet, help you find your car in a parking lot, and maybe even make fart noises. But even we didn’t think the iPhone would be replacing your cello any time soon. The newest fad in iPhone adventures? iPhone orchestras. From the University of Michigans’ Mobile Phone […]
