About ten years ago, I switched from a conventional wallet to a svelte money clip/card case. I mostly did this because a woman (possibly my girlfriend at the time, I don’t remember) told me that women didn’t care for the thick wallets in the back pockets of men’s jeans. Plus, a wallet just encouraged me to carry all sorts of crap that I didn’t need or want.
Via cool hunter Josh Rubin, we find a “next generation wallet for people who hate wallets” called the Jini. They look like a discarded chunk of the early, multi-coloured iMacs. They’re a little too cute and plastic for my taste, but I can see other people digging them. I’d heartily recommend my aforementioned Victorinox money clip/card holder, which is tiny, durable and classic-looking.
They’ve got a nifty Flash product demo that’s all-business, which I appreciate. One tip on the demo, guys: when you show the dimensions, but a common object next to it, like a fork or an apple or a Bic lighter, so that we can judge the size for ourselves.
