Korejanai Robo USB Memory Stick: More Stick than Memory

qStart Blows My Mind with Its Sheer Uselessness

I’ve seen some absolutely idiotic devices in the course of my storied career as a blogger, but this one really takes things to a new level. The qStart is a device that plugs into the cigarette lighter in your car. It’s got a little speaker, but this thing isn’t going…
