Jankiest Tech purchase ever.

OK so.. im sure im not the only goon has saw purchased something that I thought was just utterly amazing.. only to find it was actually nothing more Jankiness in disguise.

What was.. or were.. some of your jankiest tech purchases ever...

I'm going to have to admit to

- The Sega Saturn
I dont remember a single good game off of this system. I think i probably sold this thing and gave blood, just to pay for a tuition bill.. ok im lying. Probably beer.

- The Iomega Hip Zip
A whopping 40mb of storage on nice lil extra flimsy discs! I dont even know if a whole podcast would fit on oe of those discs. ugh! The best thing about that thing is that the lil disc thingies for it were featured in the movie: Minority report.. other than that... I think I threw them at teenagers on the Bart. because teenagers are the devil. And throwing things at them makes me smile.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
