+ - Sci-Am's list of useless stuff at CES this year.

Submitted by EWAdams
EWAdams (953502) writes "Scientific American's blog has a run-down of some of the weirder and more pointless junk being flogged at the Consumer Electronics show this year. Among the examples:

GameDr Smack Talk In case you can't remember what to say when you pwn somebody in Halo on Xbox live, just hit one of the five buttons on this little box to deliver your message instantly. (The idea is, see, you record your smack-talk in advance, so that it's at the ready whenever those rockets go off. Get it?) If I owned one of these (and an Xbox, and a TV...) I might record my cat meowing. That way, when I pwned somebody, I could say "meow!" (Take that, mid-western 12 year old!)
Yeah, that's what the world needs more of: a way to automate being a tiresome adolescent."
