We knew it wouldn’t take too long for some of these things to start virtually appearing in the App Store, and sure enough, a selection of Vuvuzela iPhone apps are now available for your downloading, err, pleasure
Like putting your head in a hornet’s nest
Guaranteed to help you lose friends and annoy people, the various iPhone apps (six at the last count) help you make a hideous racket on your phone – and join in with the hideous racket currently resonating around the World Cup stadiums in South Africa.
Battling the Vuvuzela buzz
Local newspapers are reporting that Cape Town shops were running out of “vuvu-stopper” earplugs, as spectators battle to block out the beastly roar made by Vuvuzelas – which are able to generate noise levels of up to 130 decibels (a chainsaw can only manage 100 dBs).
The Guardian has reported that the authorities are considering banning the racket rockets, with broadcasters, players and coaches all moaning about the noise being created inside the stadiums.
At least two iPhone versions are available for free: Vuvuzela 2010 and the equally ghastly Virtual Vuvuzela (which at least lets you customise the migraine-inducing noise-sticks with your team colours).
Personally, we’d be inclined to dunk any iPhone making such an awful racket into the nearest glass of lager, and we think we may not be alone in that sentiment – so use your iVuvuzela with care!
