A St. Louis-based online retailer has found a way to insert itself into the biggest tech scandal of the young decade -- and ensure that nothing like it happens again.

Yesterday website announced that it plans to supply Gray Powell with a 20-year supply of cargo pants.

Powell is the Apple engineer who famously left his next-generation iPhone in a California beer hall this month. The phone was later sold to tech-site Gizmodo (which has been promoting ad nauseam its shady tech scoop ever since).

In a press release yesterday the owner of stated that his pants -- with dozens of pockets for guns and/or gadgets -- would all but guarantee that Powell never again misplaces a piece of top-secret technology. 

"When I came across this story on Gizmodo, all I could think about was the tactical pants' cell phone pocket," said Chad Weinman, CEO of "The pants practically make it impossible to lose anything because there is a secure pocket for everything."

Weinman adds that he'd like to buy Powell a drink, "but only if he wears his new tactical pants to the bar."

How's that for tact? Or, rather, tactlessness?
