Take out some gadgets for a test drive



forrent1.pngHow would you like to try out a device for a month before you sink in hundreds of dollars to buy a new gadget? At ybuy, an online rental club, you can rent anything from a $2,500 the Breville Baristat espresso machine to a new Kindle Fire tablet.  On April 1, the new iPad will be available, but there likely will be a supply shortage because of its popularity. Subscription price is $24.95, with the new product arriving on the first of each month. After the 30-day trial period, you can return the device, or opt to purchase it.
