Our New Favorite Drinking Game: Condom Brand Or Android Device?

There once was a time when popular cellphones had names like StarTAC, meant to appeal to early adopters and the tech-savvy. But today’s smartphones are now equal parts communication device and fashion accessory, and the names have gotten sexier to match that change. But have they gotten so sexy you can’t tell whether you’re buying a phone or a condom?

The folks at the Intercom Blog took a look at this very question. Comparing this list of device names to brand names for condoms, and creating what is now our new favorite drinking game (which we only play with non-alcoholic gin, as we most certainly do not encourage the drinking of alcohol).

Without peeking at the Intercom chart, see if you can tell which of these names belongs to a condom brand, an Android device, or both (answers below the link):

1. Electrify
2. Sensation
3. Elite
4. Hero
5. Indulge

Personally, I swear by my Atrix… which is a smartphone. I hope.

    If the phone comes with a vibrate option, it can serve a dual purpose (but it won’t replace condoms).

      The iPhone 5, shaped like a personal massager with a 10″ x 1.5 inch screen with 10 hours of battery.

    They should have a name like “yada yada yada”

    It’s really question of which one people want to buy in a larger or smaller size.

    If cell phones had the same consumer perception as condoms, we would still be using our circa-1993 Motorola 16″ long brick phones with the ribbed battery handle.

      Actually we’re headed the way of ever larger phones again, my galaxy nexus is thinner then my old StarTAC was but overall it’s alot bigger.

    for that matter, ever notice how bananas can also be used as fake phone props AND used to teach how to use condoms?

      Not to mention proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that creationism trumps evolution.

      • Daggertrout says:

        I like this retort.

      • SavijMuhdrox says:

        So I’m confused.. if God created the banana, and it fits in my hand and i can make cellphone calls with it, or hang my condom on it.. then.. God is Google.. no wait.. thats not right.. hold on.. first came the monkeys with the bananas, wait.. no, it was Adam.. right, no god-fearing human throws poo. So Adam popped into existence, Pop! and God called him on his cellphone, and said “Hey, you’re a banana!”… no thats not right either.. can someone explain why we are learning of this NOW?!?! And no one TOLD DARWIN?!?!

      That reminds me of an only tangentially related anecdote from high school. I was in health class and the teacher had just finished a lecture on proper which included an emphasis on the fact that if they don’t roll down on the … target then they’re inside out. Seconds before the bell would ring to end the class, she pulled one out and started rolling it inside-out onto her fingers and asked, “Ok, quick before you all go, what I’m doing wrong here?” and without hesitation — in fact, I couldn’t stop myself — I responded “You’re putting it on your HAND.” The best part was how she tried to be angry but just couldn’t help cracking up with the class.

    There’s an app for that.

  9. Daggertrout says:

    I’m pretty sure the first two are condoms and the last two are phones.

    I’m kinda on the fence with Elite…

    I usually refer to my phone’s vibrate mode as “pleasure mode”.

    Chocolate Touch… nice …

    That would explain my problem with always activating the internal moisture sensor.
