5 gadgets for (overly) paranoid smartphone users
When we finished this article, we concluded that one may consider themselves paranoid all they want, but you can never be truly paranoid unless you start carrying your cash inside your iPhone case, which also doubles as a darn stun gun, while you're using your phone to monitor where your kids and the dog are going right about now. That's the kind of stuff you'll be getting into with this humble selection of five gadgets for the (overly) paranoid mobile users.

We bet there are tens more creative ideas out there, but that's all we could muster before we lapsed into the dilemma of getting - or not getting - the iPhone stun gun case (pictured left). It's so glorious, it literally makes your iPhone stunning! Anyway, have fun seeing these examples of creative extremism, and come in with your own discoveries if you have any to share.

Well, I hid my porn collection quite deep. I think I am okay. And a stun gun? Is that legal?

stun guns are mostly legal, some states (or cities) in US maybe not. Best bet is to carry (legally) a concealed handgun, something in a small 9mm or even .380 if you are new to guns.

Oh, STFU. Some people refuse to be a willing victim. Maybe things are a blissful utopia where you live, but here in the States, it's a person's right (some would say responsibility) to protect themselves and those around them. And before you ask, no, I don't own a gun myself. Yet. But as the victim of a stabbing (despite having my own knife, I wasn't able to retaliate), a proper way to defend myself is on my list of things to get. Of course, a stun gun iPhone case isn't what I'd go for.

An eye for an eye, and the whole world is blind. That man who stabbed you probably was in your place not too long ago, and the perpetrator was in the same shoes before him, and so on so forth. Cycle continues, and people retaliate crime with more crime, and the pot turns and the US continues to become an even bigger sh*thole. So much for your liberties, murica!

The "Pocket Vault" is also know as an "Alumawallet". You can find them for anywhere between $5 and $20 depending where you look at (if you can even find them anymore).

Isn't the iPhone the first thing the mugger or snatcher get? Seriously, if you want your cash or card safe, get a leg shin strap on pouch. At least get a concealed waist pocket, and have a wallet as decoy. Not a contraption for the thief to get with one go with everything important bundled.
