Dun-Dun-Dun... Dun-Dun-Da-Dun

6:00 PM -- For some people, the biggest wireless news this week isn't Verizon Wireless 's self-proclaimed leap into pole-position or Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK)'s entry into the GPS market. (See Nokia Finds GPS Market and Verizon Claims Q3 Wireless Supremacy .)

Nope. It's a damn game controller. Shaped like a guitar. In fact, The Guitar Hero wireless controller from Red Octane.

Now, I don't have time for games. In fact, I think they sap your moral fiber worse than flouride. I do, however, know plenty of grown men -- and yes, it's usually men -- who have flipped for this particular game.

I just find it amusing that -- at $60 a pop -- the wireless game controller alone could cost you more than your ordinary WiFi access point. Nice work if you can get it.
