Two entries are fine. I'll add that to the rules. Each one should be in a separate post for easier tracking though.

Does Windows count as a tech product? We could be a potential winner! (Besides that small group of mac users hiding in the corner.)

GREAT contest and a very nice idea, I must admit!

Let me thing of something as I had few "bad" products over the years. I can surely come up with something to write about...

Anyway, GOOD LUCK everyone!

Could it be an ASUS product?

Not that I have any that sucked; I'm still on my old overclocked P4P800...

On the other hand, if ASUS wants to send me newer products, I'll be happy to tell wether they suck or not! (hint! hint!)

Great entries so far guys, this is turning out to be a great contest! I can't take credit for the idea... that one was ASUS. Matt and Rory helped refine the rules though, so kudos to them
