I don't mind telling you I have three Roku boxes in my house.
That's not me being boastful; it's me revealing how much I love
The new $99.99 Roku 3 takes the place of the Roku 2 XS as the
high-end model in the line, and it's without a doubt the company's
best box yet. But questions remain: Is it worth the extra cash, and
does it beat the Apple TV at its own media-streaming game?
For the uninitiated, a Roku box plugs into one of your TV's
HDMI ports, then serves up nearly every video and audio service
known to man: Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, HBO Go, Netflix,
Pandora, Slacker, Spotify, TuneIn Radio, Vudu, and literally
hundreds of others.

On Tuesday, Apple announced the new iPhone 4S
in a humble ceremony, with little fanfare from the press. Nonplussed,
the blogosphere instead focused on more pressing issues, such as the
rate of new job creation. It was a day like any other.

Money Saving Tips
Ever since I saw The Terminator as a child, I've had an ever-present fear that robots will eventually take over the world. Then about ten years ago, I saw the Roomba Vacuum and thought, oh god, it's happening! Of course, Roombas are very, very cool (and now they have Scoobas and other crazy sweep-on-their-own vacuums), but hardly Cyberdyne Systems' worthy. I mean, they don't even have eyes.
But then, I found this: Cam Baby Humanoid.

When I'm looking to buy kids' toys, I am looking for three things:
One: I want it to be cheap, because in these hard times, affordability is key. Two: I want it to be safe, because choking hazards and badly made toys just aren't good for your kids to play with.
And three: I want it to creep me the heck out.
What, you don't want your kids' toys to freak you out? You're obviously in the minority there, because these Cartoon Shaped USB Rechargeable Mini Portable Speakers are the creepiest things in the world, but I bet your kids would love them.
