AOL reports: "ADMIT IT: It's fun to be the first on the block to own the newest gadget. If nothing else, you get serious bragging rights. But when it comes to actually using that product, many early adopters discover that some kinks still need to be worked out.

2. PlayStation 3
3. Draft N' Wireless Routers
