Siemens phones to detect and alert you to your own halitosis

Ryan Block, @ryan
Siemens Oktoberfest

In perfect timing with Oktoberfest descended upon us, Siemens has apparently developed a system for their cellphones that detects and alerts users to offensive breath odors (because really, what could possibly be worse than having bad breath?). And though we think a breathalyzer cellphone might be more of an odor, er, we mean order, the spokeswoman for Siemens justified the technology by stating "Some people take smelling good rather seriously." Funny, that's one thing we've never heard anyone accuse Europeans of. What! We kid!
