More people returned Logitech's Google TV box than actually purchased it in the first quarter.More people returned Logitech's Google TV box than actually purchased it in the first quarter.

Ouch, with news this bad it can only mean one thing... price drop! If you are so bold to purchase one of these boxes you'll only be paying $99 bucks as opposed to the $249 you would have originally had to spend. You'll learn to love the clunky interface and all it's complicated intricacies, that is unless your cable company hasn't blocked you from using it. Good luck!

But that's not all! If you were an early adopter and have managed to come out of the ordeal eye-strain free you'll have twenty free games waiting for you for being such a loyal customer. Those free games will be comprised of titles from Nintendo's eShop - ten of which have to be NES and the other ten GBA... but hey, free games!

I keep hearing fantastic things about DropBox but I have yet to take advantage of their service. Should you decide to not make the same mistake you'll get two free gigabytes of storage space for signing up. Happy sharing.

Three reasons as to why the iPad won't see a quick price drop after it's release.Three reasons as to why the iPad won't see a quick price drop after it's release.

This should be pretty easy to figure out especially if you happened to be an early iPhone adopter (such as myself) from way back in 2007.  One would conclude that Apple y wouldn't repeat the same mistake although it was nice quite nice to get some free Apple money.

All it took was a couple of cyber attacks from the aging browser to warrant Google's position to drop support. Seriously, if you still use IE6 (or IE7 for that matter) - upgrade your browser. Your making the Internet cry.

Reindeer droppings apparently make for some festive ornaments and jewelry.Reindeer droppings apparently make for some festive ornaments and jewelry.

The zoo had such success last year selling Christmas ornaments made of the reindeer droppings that they started making jewelry this year. The droppings are dime-sized, dehydrated, sterilized and spray-painted with glitter. They're called 'Magical Reindeer Gems.'
