I have one that I use to use years ago came with and was designed to attach to a "swiss-army-type" backpack strap.

Reason why I bring it up: I used the the phone pouch to attach it to a grab rail on the boat; and it always kept the phone handy, audible, and protected.

...just another marketing idea for you. I'll forward you my address for my check!

We just came back from CTIA, the wireless show.
And a golfer thought it'd be great to wrap on the golf bag shoulder strap, to be located just above chest level.
It could also be strapped to the handle of a stroller.
So yes, attaching one to a grab rail on the boat would work too. Much more secure than just using the clip that comes w/ some phones.

I assume since the product is out this isn't a problem, but, isn't that the name of the 2 way radio system for motorcycles?

That is what she promised.
And she'd be proud to have it named that too!
But w/ the name chatterbox, it'd have to have dry pipes.

Yes, it is...saw that in an autoweek issue about a yr ago.
But afaik, no issues. She has it trademarked.
Btw, there are ALOT of 'chatterbox' things around.
Since the site is all 'Flash', it doesn't come up w/ a google search.

Anyways, thanks for the well wishes.
I hope it does well enough to make her happy.

great good luck, did she get a lawyer to pattern it. I had a idea stolen my fault 6years ago. I drew up a design for a carpet kicker with a spring and shock built in. my father said it wouldn't work so I told some of the salesman at a flooring convention . about my idea then a year later it was on the market just like I talked about. so if you have a idea who do you talk to a engineer or a lawyer?? anyone know thanks. oh I have dry pipes for sale need bigger ones

You draw it up on paper and mail it to yourself so that it has a USPS mark on it from the gov't. This establishes your time line. You do this before you ever comunicate your idea to anyone.

Then you go see your lawyer and have disclosure statments drawn up and have every person that you talk to about the idea sign and date one on that day. The statement will also testify that you brought this ideaa to them.

Don't ever tell anyone about the idea in the mailed envelope and put it in asafety deposti box.

If anything ever comes up, you have the disclosure statements dated after the stamped date on the envelope.

Of course, someone can claim that they had this idea before you, but a goo PI would be able to fish out the leak and get you some good info to use in court.

Of course, unless you are working for someone and getting paid to come up with ideas, protecting yourself from design theft is pretty hard to do and pretty much a (rap shoot either way.
