Having an iPhone has completely changed...

I love the rare bumper sticker that actually makes me laugh out loud, and t-shirts are in the same category. Threadless has some of the funniest t-shirts I've seen, especially their line of Twitter t-shirts. The company has been around since 2000 and has proven their unique business model works. Every Monday they display t-shirt designs submitted by the public. Voters then determine the best designs to print, and the designer gets paid a flat-fee. They offer an online catalog of t-shirts in various categories, and there's always something new. In 2007 they even opened a traditional store in Chicago.
Revolution let's you design you own snowboard, Nike let's you design your own shoe, and Boardpusher let's you design a skateboard, These types of retailers not only offer unique products, but they can learn from their customers and quickly detect trends.
PS- Do you take your phone everywhere?
