The December issue of Men’s Health includes a Tech Guide with what it says are, “100 products that will change your life!” If you’re looking for the latest news in men’s health, for exercise routines, for dating advice, or for fashion tips, Men’s Health is a great resource. If you’re looking for the latest trends in technology, go somewhere else. Most of the items on their Top 100 list are ridiculous. I can’t imagine a universe in which I’d describe a plastic spork or a chainsaw as something that will change my life. And choosing the Zune as the #1 gadget is simply insulting. I have 9,000 songs using 35 gigs of space on my computer. My 80 gig iPod handles that. A 30 gig Zune won’t. End of story.
