Gift Guide: NVidia 3D Vision Kit

NVidia 3-D Vision Kit (Gamer, Under $250) "3-D gaming" is one of those terms that gets bandied about quite a bit these days.

Gift Guide: Glide TV

Glide TV (Homebody, Under $250) More and more of us are watching video content from a notebook computer connected to our television sets, but efficiently interfacing with this content has proven to be something of a challenge.

Take a look at the gallery below and let us know if you agree. (We call first dibs on the all-turquoise and PET computer keyboards!) ...

What Are the Best Budget Computer Speakers Under $100?

Question: I use my computer for most of my TV and movie watching and music listening, but my machine's built-in speakers sound bloody awful.

Split Stick: Two USB Drives in One

Have you ever thought to yourself, "this two-gigabyte USB drive is okay... but how much cooler would it be if I taped two of them together!" No? Well neither have we, but apparently someone did, and gave birth to the Split Stick. The Split Stick is a double-sided USB drive -- slide the button one way to expose the port for a two gigabyte flash drive, slide it the other to reveal the port for yet...

Best Earbuds Under $100?

A reader asks: I travel and commute a lot, and I need a set of headphones for my iPod and laptop. Those white earbuds just don't cut it on a plane or subway – especially for blocking out noise. I like to watch action movies, so they need to have good bass for those Hollywood explosions. But I'm also a jazz fan. Hey Reader: We're not crazy about stock earbuds, either, and we've tried...

13 Twitter No-No's

The micro-blogging site Twitter, along with its 140-character-or-less messages known as "tweets," is continuing to earn daily references from media outlets, but to the uninitiated it can seem confusing, narcissistic and creepily voyeuristic.

A new keyboard design from Esterline has medical professionals and run-of-the-mill hypochondriacs jumping for joy.
