Headphones are a personal, subjective thing, and so is one’s affinity for the movie TRON. Monster’s T3 earbuds are a tie-in with the recent TRON remake—the website boasts that they feature “Disney’s futuristic styling and the phosphorous glow of the TRON universe.” Well, they don’t actually glow, and if we hadn’t been informed that they were TRON-related we never would have recognized the silver-and-blue TRON-ish T design on each earbud.

We know, you hate your job -- we would too if we had to work on a PC all day. But just because the economy stinks doesn’t mean you can’t change jobs. It only means you’re going to have to work a little harder at it. These days, your professional online profile is as good as a first impression, so spend a little time sprucing up your LinkedIn.com profile with an updated résumé, skills, and a photo (not one of your drunken Facebook ones; in fact, you should probably delete those altogether).

If you’ve always wanted a light disc of your very own, now’s your chance.
