- I read an article in the Wall Street Journal today about the 3D phone that Amazon is supposedly developing. If memory serves, this is not a new thing, LG made a 3D phone a couple of years ago, which I barely remember because I never saw one outside of a store. The 3D TV push seems to have faded significantly.

- It certainly appears that BYOD is here to stay. Has anyone figured out the impact from a financial perspective? Does it actually cost a business money to embrace BYOD, or does it save money?

- Some movies on DVD have a calibration guide built in. I've used these on my monitor before and it worked great, but I have no idea what movies include this, and whether you have any of them. Other than that and the resources mentioned in earlier posts, you might want to check this out: http://www.wikihow.com/Calibrate-Your-Monitor

- I've rooted my first Android phone, and the two main things I want to do are (1) flash a new ROM, and (2) overclock it. Obviously, I want to overclock it as much as I can. How do you know how far you can push a CPU? Is there a formula or rule of thumb about how much you can overclock a CPU, or is it just trial and error?

- Microsoft has been pushing the Google = Scrooge thing in its latest ad campaign. Basically, MS says Google reads all of your emails, and you should switch to er, whatever it is they call Hotmail now. Ok, I get that MS wants everyone to use their services instead, but in reality, is there a lack of privacy if you use Gmail?

- The best cheap earbuds I've found are Panasonic RP-HJE 120. My cat has a taste for earbud wires apparently, and every time that slips my mind and I leave a pair laying around, I get to buy some new ones so I've tried a lot of brands and models. There are really two main things to consider, as you noted - how they fit and how they sound.

- I think this could potentially be a serious problem. Most likely it will result in significant backlash against ISPs and MPAA/RIAA, and I would not be surprised if either some FCC rules or federal legislation results.

- I think it's safe to say that Apple's ditching of Google Maps didn't exactly go as planned. Now that Google Maps is available on iOS 6, is the Apple Map app going to fade away? Will people actually continue to use Apple's inferior map app, just because it is Apple, or will most people bail and go back to Google Maps?

- I doubt most of them think about it. Those Apple customers that do probably ante up for an Apple warranty. It's a trade off - you get a device that is as slim and elegant as possible, but it's a bear to repair. Fortunately, most Apple products are pretty reliable.

- Ok, maybe I'm missing something, but this is driving me crazy! I somehow increased the page magnification on my Chrome browser, apparently by moving my mouse the wrong way or something.

- I was thinking about getting a new LCD display/TV for Christmas. It seems that the majority of electronic devices are made in just a handful of factories anyway. I mean, hey, Apple uses displays from LG and Samsung, Intel CPUs are used by everyone and their brother, multiple devices are assembled by Foxcomm, and so on.

- I liked the photo of the hard drive being destroyed. I would love to put some of the freakin' equipment I deal with on a 10,000lb hydraulic press with a hardened steel spike!

- I thought it looked like I had accidentally opened Facebook too when I first logged onto Twitter after the change. But I think the bigger part of the change is to the new Twitter app that goes along with the larger site changes, which includes user photo streams.

- rhames answers Re: Where can I find one of those classic IBM keyboards to use with my modern desktop?You are not alone, many people consider those IBM Model M keyboards to be the finest PC keyboard ever. They are also called "buckling spring" keyboards. There is a company called Unicomp in Kentucky that is still making new versions of those.

- Spam, which is one of the things I hate most, took a hit today with the shutdown of the C&C servers for the Grum spam botnet. Great! From what I've read, this was the 3rd largest botnet and was responsible for about 20% of spam messages worldwide.

- I would guess the cost of a good quality touch-screen display at the 15-17" screen size that most people expect for a laptop is keeping the cost too high.
