Logitech G410 is a bit of a miss.

Good: The keyboard is amazingly programmable and the lighting is top notch. LGS is great as always (in recent years at least). The build quality feels good although not as high-end as the price suggests. TKL is good if you need it. ARX is really cool although I haven't used it on the g410 yet.

Noteworthy: The keys are quiet on their way down but actually a little louder on the way up than some Cherry MX Browns. They aren't as pleasurable to type on as browns which aren't exactly the pinnacle of key switches for typing to start with. The look is quite "gamery" which may not suit everyone's taste.

Bad: Typing feels inferior to most mechanical keyboards I've tried. It seems like Romer G switches aren't bad depending on your needs (quiet but somewhat stiff) but the key design falls short. My biggest gripe is the spacebar which rattles and feels a bit cheesy. The spacebar is noisy, negating the quietness of the keyboard.

Overall: The G410 is not worth the cost unless you really want ARX on a TKL board. Romer Gs feel unique, but I think Cherry Browns and Razer Orange have the edge in feel with comparable noise.

Looks like an improvement in usability at least. The G910 has strangely designed keys that differ in size from each other... and that huge non-removable palm rest on the left side only. This looks a little better for every day. Don't mind dropping the numpad... Can always get a separate one for when it's needed.
Logitech has unveiled a new high-end gaming keyboard equipped with the company’s own Romer-G mechanical switches. Officially known as the Logitech G310 Atlas Dawn Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, it appears to be a direct descendant of the G910 Orion Spark…

$200 Beats headphones actually cost just $18 to make

"In his teardown, Louie also discovered a number of metal pieces that were used solely to increase the total weight of the headphones, making them feel more substantial. 30 percent of the Beats Solo HD's weight comes from four metal parts, which push the total weight of the headphones over 100 grams."

Beats headphones, known more for their style rather than their actual sound quality, cost significantly less to manufacture than their retail price suggests, according to a report from Bolt engineer Avery Louie that shouldn't surprise many.

When it comes to frozen pizza, @ScreamnSicilian is surprisingly good. I must admit though, the giant #moustache is less than appetizing.
