The top 15 vaporware products of all time

The tech industry has had more than its fair share of products that infamously failed to take off. Some fit the classic definition of vaporware, and were all hype and no substance. A few were simply too far ahead of their time. And others were merely...

You bet your drive

Can't get enough of poker? The Memorex USB flash drive should tide you over between games. The drive's protective cover is styled to look like a small stack of red poker chips, and the drive itself comes preloaded with a Texas Hold 'Em game. Unlike s...

iPod shuffle plays in the big leagues

iPod Shuffle owners no longer have to feel like second-class citizens of the iPod nation. Though the Shuffle's tiny size has led to some interesting accessories (my favorite is the headgear) there hasn't been a convenient way to enjoy all the iPod do...

Your iPod Is good to the last drop

iPod owners might have felt left out when I <a href="http://blogs.pcworld.com/digitalworld/archives/2007/04/this_player_sin_1.html">wrote about</a> the Noritz Juke Tower, which lets you listen to MP3s in the shower, provided they're on a thumb drive....

The new Internet menace: Wilfing

If there's one thing that I can't stand, it's cutesy new acronyms tied to questionable studies -- like "wilf," a curiously incomplete abbreviation for "what was I looking for," which refers to the apparently epidemic practice of getting distracted by...

We'll have custom blinktones?
