Gadget Pr0n: Olevia 2 Series 42-inch HDTV

You know how you have to sit down with your mom for like the hundredth time to teach her how to check her cell phone messages or how bewildered your dad gets when you tell him that he has to download the latest version of Java?

Sorry to say it, but your parents are techtarded (or technologically handicapped for the politically correct) and you will be one day too unless you keep watching Gadget Pr0n.

You don't want to end up like grandma, do you? No, you don't want to get so out of touch with technology that you start to believe that PDAs are powered by ghosts.

On today's Gadget Pr0n we'll review the Olevia 2 Series 42-inch HDTV.
