Why are tech gizmos so hard to figure out? [USA Today]
Today’s tech toys throw in goodies we scarcely used to imagine, from cellphones with tiny TV screens to computers that stream video wirelessly through your house. But lots of those features you probably don’t want, can’t use or don’t know exist.
