Actually, the Ouija board is a new piece of hardware. It's based on one of the new chipsets out of a secret collaboration between rogue elements inside AMD and Intel. The AMD guys are implementing the left hand on the pointer, and the Intel guys are implementing the right hand. They just can't agree on the shape and color of the pointer at the moment, but I hear it's supposed to meet an IEEE standard for precognitive human-interaction devices.
It depends on what a person views as IT news. Another thread is commenting on how magazines are usually outdated, but still good for articles. These would be "techy or useful" to me. IT news which is too volatile for magazines would be found at your nearest RSS teat. It's all a form of news.
