This cute little concept design is definitely not for those that have slanted floors. It'd end up rolling off the nightstand onto the floor the second it got to ringing. Then again that might help you rush out of bed to go find it, so I suppose it depends on your perspective.

Anyone who frequents the world of Azeroth is likely familiar with the danger of your account being hacked.
