Even if you don't consider yourself a veteran Internet surfer, you probably know that Amazon and other online retailers are chock-full of kitschy gizmos and gadgets... that don't have any real function. Sure, they're cute and nostalgic, but what's the point? Well, I've had enough. I went ahead and put together a list of clever, but useful products. From a marble rolling pin to a compact outlet that swivels and everything in between, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
