Broke? Fat? Don't want to smell like that steak marinade's 20 cloves of garlic on a date? Believe it or not, there's a phone gadget for that. Scentee, a Japanese company, has created cartridges called Hana Yakiniku ("nose grilled meat") that plug into your mobile device and release food scents like barbecued pork and buttered potatoes.
