We’ve all seen those products that make us scratch our head, I’ve written about some of them myself. It’s as though companies have an idea and spend thousands of dollars making it into a real product before they ask if it’s even a good idea.

There’s a lot of tech out there, and someone has to go through and filter out the sludge. So every Wednesday, I’ll be your Why-Tech Guide, searching the internet for the latest tech offerings that don’t offer much, those overpriced underwhelming products, the high-tech/why-techs.
