But we stashed them here, for you to take a look at — along with all the other stories that didn’t make the cut today. Some of them, you’ll find, are pretty good too.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.
