Purring Kitty is an interesting-looking bit of software that’ll get your Nokia phone vibrating for as long as you like. Easily bought by SMS from within the UK, but it’s more expensive and more complicated from other countries. I like the idea, but I’m more interested in getting one of these, to be honest. And it won’t support Purring Kitty. How boring of me, huh? (via Wired, via Jane, who has used a game accessory in a similar manner)
