Well, not completely useless as the FLO TV handheld does allow you to watch your favorite 'stories' just about anywhere. This might sound cool but as Engadget reports, the thing costs a brutal $250 and an $8 per month fee to receive signals! With a three year contract! That's really an outrageous pricing system for something that only does one thing- and it's not even something all that special in this day and age. Reminds me a little of the Peek (the device that allows you to check your email... and nothing else).
At least it looks cool.
