We don't know about your family, but ever since we set up our big-screen HDTV and surround-sound speakers a couple years ago, we've been to the movies exactly . . . once. There's something about enjoying a film with all settings (picture quality,...

Unlikely heroes Manfred, Sid, Diego, and Scrat join together to return an infant boy to his father before the coming ice age dooms them all. These brave souls, however, are not human. Manny is a wooly mammoth, Sid is a sloth, Diego is a saber-toothed tiger, and Scrat—one of the funniest creatures ever created—is a tiny saber-toothed squirrel who just wants to protect his precious acorn.

I just installed one of the new line of wireless 'N' routers (802.11n draft resolution), the <a href="http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=377018" target="new">Belkin Vision N1</a>. The computer industry is, for the most part, not quite as psychotically frenetic with their product introductions as the consumer electronics industry, so this went fairly smoothly.

  Who knows what the future may bring? Pioneer has announced its plans for the beloved Kuro line of plasma televisions, but those plans still seem so...unpredictable. Will Panasonic really incorporate enough of Pioneer's tech innards to make...

Lighting control for cowards.

When selecting products to review, I like to tackle new categories. Every new genre I explore provides the opportunity to better understand the industry as a whole. There is, however, one category that I've avoided like the plague: lighting systems. Why? Because my mama taught me never to stick fingers, screwdrivers, or any other conductive material into a wall socket. I have a healthy fear of my mama and an even healthier fear of performing any task that might lead to electrocution, fire, or total protonic reversal.
