    Here's the latest in the line of lists for the holidays. No, they're not dangerous this time, they're just bad. (or so they say)
    Top Five Worst Tech Gifts According to soon-to-be jobless techies [​IMG]
    1. Sega DreamCast
    2. Apple iPod
    3. Nintendo GameCube
    4. Infrared Mouse
    5. Blackberry Wireless Handheld
    However, it seems my purchases are high on the list, perhaps that's because I already own their so-called best gifts. What can you expect though, the company is in Needham, MA and lacks the requiste retro '617' area code. [​IMG]

    Considering that the iPod currently only supports an interface to MacinTrash computers, I'm not surprised it got slammed by computer professionals. [​IMG]

    Did these people actually play any Dreamcast games?? Again, did they play any GameCube games??Did they actually use the iPod???? How about the Blackberry? What infrared mouse did they use?

    I own a Dreamcast, GameCube, Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer, and a Blackberry and I feel that all these are AAA gifts! I would love an iPod, but I don't have any use for one. This list is crap if you ask me.
