MacBook Pro bags and cases
My laptop gets banged around a lot and I'm not satisfied with my case. Plus the rubber one looks cool.

Not a one-stop shop, though: listings are out of date. You'd have no idea by looking at the site that Apple just released new iPods, Canon new digital cameras, etc. How expensive can human category editors be?

You know what the best thing about the japanese rescue robot is? The second arm is completely useless! Probably doesn't even work! They just put it there because a humanoid robot is cooler than a glorified piece of construction equipment. Go Japan!

cleaning your xbox
"...reassemble the Xbox and hope you made things better rather than worse", hmm.
