Geek Gifts to Avoid: Annoy-a-tron 2.0

ThinkGeek's Annoy-a-tron 2.0 is another in a long line of "useless after one use" prank noise-makers. If anyone tried to use this on a coworker or family member more than once, they'd probably get throttled. Mark Kaelin reviewed this product for the 2008 TechRepublic Geek Gift Guide, and he gave it two out of five stars. If someone would spend $12.99 on a witty T-shirt instead, I bet you'd get more enjoyment out of that gift.
