Here's one of the more outrageous products that I've seen at tech shows: the Open It ($11) package opener. It isn't the product itself but the need for it that's contemptible: that we'd need a gadget to protect us from the packaging on other products.

Way too much electronic gear comes in those despicable clamshell blister packs. Marketers say the plastic displays well and discourages theft. But we've all cut our hands from trying to rip them open, even cautiously with scissors.

The Open It offsets its clippers to help protect your vulnerable flesh. The makers call it "Wrap Rage." Indeed.
