Let's face it: compared with lust-inducing gear like big-screen plasma TVs, feature-filled digital surround receivers, and 7.1-channel speaker systems, power accessories are about as sexy as dentistry. But if your house should ever get hit with a huge voltage surge, you might find having a tooth or two pulled a lot less painful than replacing your gear.

All the biggest news about the latest trends and products used to come out of the Consumer Electronics Show - no more. Intimate compared with the vastness of CES, the CEDIA (Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association) Expo gives companies a chance to push some products into the spotlight that might get lost in CES's Vegas glare.

BECK. You haven't completely ex-perienced Guero (Interscope; Music ••••, DVD-Audio Mix ••••, Extras ••••) until you've seen and heard this two-disc Deluxe Edition. Packaged like a hardcover book, it's filled with pictures, lyrics, and whimsical drawings.

Computers are everywhere, from our desktops to our phones to our planes, trains, and automobiles. If we look at movies like I, Robot (strictly from a conceptual standpoint, not a why-did-Hollywood-ever-make-this standpoint), there is a possible bleak future ahead of us. I prefer to look at Star Wars, where machines help, even if they can be annoying know-it-alls. Granted it's not our galaxy, but it is a lot more fun to watch than I, Robot (no disrespect to the Fresh Prince). What better way is there to improve your home theater experience than the addition of a PC? But what should you look for when setting out to buy one?
