Format War Soliders: Sync'd HD-DVD Purchase by Fanboys Spike Amazon Rank, Blu-Rayers Set To Retaliate - Gizmodo

A couple of hundred HD-DVD fanboys did an organized reverse-boycott, all purchasing HD-DVD discs on Amazon on the same day to try and prove… something. Not quite sure what.

Gigantor Remote

Ah, I love the crap they sell at Brookstone. The overpriced junk that gives the air of being vaguely useful, but is too cheap and shoddy to actually solve a problem well.

My favourite one that I saw yesterday was this $50 massive universal remote. Pretend to be a Lilliputian from the comfort of your couch!
