Panasonic "Pixi" cellphone picture dock is designed for social networking, idiots

We're not certain it needs to get any easier to post compromising photos to social networking sites, but apparently Panasonic's R&D labs think it's a problem in need of a giant, garish solution: say hello to the Pixi, a concept cellphone dock / cameraphone companion designed to send photos directly from your mobile to mixi, a Japanese MySpace clone. Sliding your phone into the Pixi automatically brings up your photos, and then configuring your phone and sending those latest bleary-eyed bar pics to the web is as simple as smacking one of the six touch-sensitive icons on the unit. Of course, you won't be doing this on the sly -- the unit's bright red shell with carnival-style LED chaser lights might tip off your companions, but if you can't figure out how to email photos to a website from a modern phone, you probably deserve the scorn.
