It's that time of the year again. No, we're not referring to tax season—we actually mean it's that time when you've officially stopped feeling guilty for backing out on any and all New Year's resolutions. But it just so happens that this glorious tradition lines up with our tax season procrastination.
We like technology because it's "cool". But you know what? If it weren't for the brave tech-loving men and women of Hollywood, technology wouldn't be something you spoke of in public. Imagine a world where white earbuds weren't reason for a rough mugging, but a brutal wedgie instead.

Sometimes DSLRs just aren't practical, like any time you go out in public. Both Canon and Sony have sold ultra compacts for a while, but both have recently added optical image stablization to the mix, forcing us to take the baby cameras a bit more seriously.
Next-gen has become now-gen, and despite massive shortages, at least the media can enjoy the latest gaming systems you can't play. And when the reviews of three consoles collide, they smash into little pieces, mix in radioactive lava and form a Frankenreview. What did CNET, PCMag, TIME, Wired, and Rocky Mountain News…
