The name Shredder has always been associated with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' nemesis, mainly due to the diet of cartoon in the era I grew up in, but as one enters adulthood, one will realize that shredders aren't out there to take over the world, but more likely cover up your tracks of documents. This time round, the Aleratec DVD/CD Shredder XC does what it says - shredding whatever optical discs that you own so that data within cannot be read or retrieved, attempting to do so would be placing yourself in the shoes of all the king's horses and his men in piecing Humpty Dumpty back together again. Expect the Aleratec DVD/CD Shredder XC to retail for $74.99.

Texas Instruments is the one behind the projector industry right from the very beginning, and they have now come up with the Brightboxe projector that targets gamers, where it can hook up to virtually any current game console despite being diminutive enough in size to qualify as a pico projector.

Features include the use of RGB LED lamps and the ability to throw images up to 100” diagonally. No word on availability, but it is tipped to retail for $199.
Lin Ring had a $14,600 surgical fingerprint switching procedure which managed to bypass security scanners at the airport, but sharp-eyed immigration officials managed to notice scars on her fingers before catching on onto her game.

Shared specifications include USB connectivity, a 1.3-megapixel webcam, 512MB RAM, a 4GB SSD, Wi-Fi connectivity and Windows XP as the operating system of choice. Guess the internal memory is the main reason as to why the prices are far below the $200 mark.
