There's no point knowing the answer if you can't hit the buzzer faster than your opponents. That's the premise behind such long-running TV quiz shows as Jeopardy! and It's Academic, the latter being a competition for high school students airing in a few cities. What better way to train than hooking up the Rolls GS76 Game Show? The system consists of a control unit and eight buzz-in remotes attached by 15-foot phone cables.
The yawn heard round the world that greeted the introduction of 3D TV at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show was mainly due to a perceived dearth of compelling content. “It’s the software, stupid,” was the major refrain.

Intercity buses that pick up passengers near Penn Station, for example, are oases of connectivity in a city of slaphappy password protection.
