You know those gadgets that you can buy at drugstores? Back in the early 2000s it was all portable CD players and PC speakers. Now it's MP3 players with 2GB of storage and wimpy tablets.

Obviously, the $30 stock earphones in the…
This Coby Keychain LCD is about 50% off at Amazon. It holds "62 photos" in undisclosed amounts of memory, but with a 1.5-inch screen, you're not talking more than postage-stamp-sized shots anyhow. Anyone ever try one of these? [Amazon]
Low End Theory megastar Coby has just announced a recall for approximately 12,000 of their DVD/CD/MP3 player/TV tuner units. The affected models are the TF-DVD170 and the TF-DVD176, which sold for between $140 and $170 over the last couple of years.

It's no frills, and I'm guessing that means no component connection, but if you are looking for a new DVD player for favorite niece to play peanut butter, this Coby is a decent option.

For the bread'n'butter—this 20GB player has a 2-inch screen and can play back MP3, OGG, and WMA audio files and AVI video…
Another day, another PMP, right? Negatory, Batman. The PMP7040 from Coby is a little different with the insanely large 7-inch screen. Sure seven inches isn't much compared to your 60-inch HDTV, but in the PMP world, seven inches is equivalent to Ron Jeremy.
