USB rocket launcher
Sometimes it's not so obvious that something will make a horrible holiday gift (or just a grudgingly accepted one). That's why we're here to clear the air for you.
Following are 10 tech-related products, which, while potentially tempting, you might want to rethink before wrapping up in red and green (or blue and silver, or whatever the colors for your holiday of preference happen to be).
They aren't necessarily bad products, just not particularly apt choices for the holidays. So, without further ado:
10. Pointless USB add-ons.
We've had enough of these. Stupid gadgets that plug into your USB ports are not only a waste of space, they're totally 2006--come on, USB 2.0 is no longer a novelty! So, for the sake of humanity, please don't stuff stockings with USB (pictured), , , or (err, OK). Your loved ones will thank you later.
