    Once upon a time, a device called the BlackBerry was purportedly more addictive than crack (cocaine). <a href="http://www.tuaw.com/2010/03/02/forget-the-crackberry-stanford-students-are-addicted-to-their/">Has the iPhone overtaken the humble CrackBerry</a> in terms of addictiveness? Is that even a word?

    Western Digital make some <a href="http://www.macworld.com/article/146766/2010/03/wd_harddrive.html">hard drives with cool displays</a> that display information even when the drive is powered down - but we all know that that stuff is powered by unicorn tears, anyway.
