Worst use of fire-engine red (MP3 player division): Wolverine Data MVP (120GB)
A portable media player that holds 120GB of music, video, and pics? Awesome! A "portable" media player that's roughly the size of the monolith in "2001: A Space Odyssey" and available only in fire-engine red? Not awesome! This feature-packed player has a lot going for it, but we resent these facts: We need a wheelbarrow to lug it around, and everyone can see us doing it because it's bright freakin' red.
