A maybe fake video of a GoPro tumbling off of a drone and landing on the main dance floor at Burning Man has emerged. It is now a perfect testament to what makes those three things—GoPros, drones, Burning Man—so annoying.
One of the more annoying things about public transportation is that you can rarely maintain any sense of privacy when using your gadgets. It can be maddening when you have to work or communicate and someone keeps looking at your notebook's screen.
Good news, everyone—Mattel has made an astronaut Barbie! Anything that promotes this male-dominated job to girls is The Right Stuff. And it's sanctioned by NASA, too. The bad news: once again they have fallen into stereotyping by making the helmet and other parts of the suit pink.
As tech makes our lives easier and easier, the little incoveniences that are left just get more glaring by contrast. Sure, I don't have to use a chamber pot but sometimes my magical pocket computer that knows practically everything gets uncomfortably warm when I'm using to to play GTA III and that's annoying.
Today, temporarily, some users with access to Facebook's Power Editor tool got a glimpse of a new targeted ad system the social network is prepping to roll out next week.

Among the things that could have possibly made high school more annoying, getting a robo-call telling me to wake up at 6:30 am would probably be high on the list! That or having the principal pour water on my face.
If I asked you to name three annoying things about the internet, two of them would probably be captchas and advertisements. The third would probably involve Justin Bieber, Twitter, or some combination of both. But back to these captcha advertisements...
Love 'em or loathe 'em, the blaring plastic trumpets have become the hallmark of matches at the 2010 World Cup. We asked Trevor Cox, president of the UK Institute of Acoustics to explain their appeal – or otherwise
My car has a terrible suspension so I hate speed bumps. Even people with decent cars probably feel the same way. Wouldn't it be awesome if the speed bump flattened when you were driving slow?
You may remember the original Annoy-a-tron, a tiny device designed to annoy the crap out of friends and enemies alike. Well, now there's the new Annoy-a-tron 2.0, taking the obnoxiousness to new heights.
Musical doorbells are annoying enough, but what if you gave your visitors the freedom to express themselves creatively? That's exactly what designer Li Jian had in mind when he came up with the Pianobell. Unless you are friends with a lot of talented musicians, I don't see much of an upside here. On the other hand, it…
Every once in a while, a product comes along that is so utterly baffling that you begin to question whether or not society has stopped evolving. The Sat-Nag GPS unit is one of those products.

These little gadgets are perfect for really really annoying your house mates: flip one on and conceal it somewhere, and until it's dark it does nothing. When the lights are off the fun starts, as the box starts to emit either the distant sounds of dripping water or a barking dog. Of course, your victim will turn the…
The Gun Operated Alarm Clock was a good conceptual design, but the Laser Target Alarm Clock has two things that its predecessor lacks.
