Hard to believe, I know, but sometimes technology is handy for something other than entertaining or informing.

Need a roomy fridge? How about 32 cubic feet spread out in this new Samsung ($3,299) French door fridge, the highest capacity in its class (36 inches deep, 70 inches tall). In addition to room for 32 bags of groceries, you get a sleek stainless steel touch control panel, "power freeze" and "power cool" settings and two ice makers – one in the door (duh) and one in the freezer – that combine to produce nearly 12 pounds of cubes a day. Sounds like the start of a great party!
