See-Net's Top Five Worst Holiday Tech Gifts...

(2018 Update: Once upon a time, CNet posted a video where they listed the Top Five Worst Holiday Tech Gifts. It was a bad, almost mockable video. As of May 2018, it is no longer up. Fortunately, I have listed the items in question and left my own little comments on the matter. So, the context is largely removed, but the written bit is still valid.)

For those who can't be bothered to watch the video, here's the list in general;

5. DVD Player. Nobody uses DVD Players anymore because they either have it in their Blu-Ray or game console... While I'm one of those folks who DO NOT use game consoles for playing DVDs, I do play DVDs on my Blu-Ray player and stick with the DVD Recording Device for recording gameplay footage since that's all I can pretty much do with it.

4. Wii U... poor Nintendo. Didn't do a good enough job of promoting or pushing their new console and this is what they get. Even so, out of all the possible "worst tech ideas" they could have pulled out of their ass, they go with the Wii U? Seriously, See-Net? Are you actually suggesting that the Wii U is a worse tech purchase than something like, oh, I don't know, THIS THING?

For Dingo's sake, See-Net, at least the Wii U can go online and play downloadable games, so there's some value to the damn thing. But a Wii Mini? THAT's not on your list? Dumbasses wrote this list, I'm sure.

3. Fitness Trackers. Why anyone would buy a fitness tracker for a gift is something I'm never going to understand. Fitness trackers is something you buy YOURSELF, not others. That's just being stupid and mean-spirited in a way. You might as well send that person a letter telling them they're fat, like that Fargo woman with the trick-or-treaters.

2. Chromebook Pixel, a Google netbook that is overpriced for what it does, which is browse the Internet. You might as well get yourself a tablet or high-end laptop instead. Or just get a cheap-o netbook if all you're going to do is visit porn sites on the go.

1. Anything Blackberry. Just Blackberry.
