I have lusted after many a gadget or gizmo. The iPhone, Sony's Bravia TV, the techie umbrella - these are all plastic electronic things that have stolen my heart and captured true human emotion. I have also been repulsed by many a gadget or gizmo. The USB caplet, the MP3 Player that gives facials and the skirt covered mouse pad all make me wonder if half the industrial designers in the world are color blind creatures who have never met a smart, feeling woman.
For a split second I considered showcasing the Executive Billiards Table as a "Totally Geeky or Geek Chic?" item, then realized it wasn't a fair fight. While touted as a luxury device, the table is so horrifically geeky that I can barely look at it.
The table has a LCD TV, stereo with flat paneled speakers, games/DVD player, library rack, night lights, ball storage rack and a mirror backed bar. It costs $12,000. I say, buy a normal billiards table and a sweet flat-screen set. Forget all these awful devices that combine 10 bajillion gadgets into one.
