If you have time in the morning, be sure to check out CNET's The 404 Podcast every day at 8 a.m. PT on CNET LIVE; that way you won't miss things like yesterday's post-show, where the three of us spent half an hour reminiscing about the glory days of ABC's classic TGIF programming lineup.

The Weekend Clock--for a saner work week

Unless you're a workaholic, how can you not want one of these? Like, hello, anyone in there? I mean, we love writing about tech stuff all day long at CNET. But there's got to be a work-life balance, right?

With weekends feeling way too brief, the week may seem a tad shorter with a Weekend Clock ($29.45) that helps you anticipate Friday with a countdown display. Speaking of which, what do you know, it's Friday already. TGIF!
