Ouch: Word is that Verizon is pulling the Samsung Glyde from its shelves due to unnamed issues, even going so far as to offer a different kind of cell phone if a current Glyde owner sends one in for help.

I know the Glyde as Nate's cell phone on Gossip Girl (I wonder if the show's attention to detail will include having his phone replaced?), and had heard less-than-stellar things about it, but I feel bad for the people who chose the Glyde — it's always sad to lose a new gadget (or have your gadget cred challenged).

On that note, what is the worst gadget you ever bought, and why? A malfunctioning MP3 player? A computer that was refreshed the day after? Spill!
