"As 2009 winds down and we try to come up with new and clever ways of referring to the early years of this century, there's really only one thing left to do: declare our ten favorite gadgets of the aughts and show them off in chronological order."
The end of a year always produces a series of lists: Best of the Year, Worst of the Year, and so on. Naturally, the end of a decade brings about all the more reflection, and you can find various lists for the "2000's" almost anywhere you care to look. The good folks at Engadget have created one that may be of particular interest: the "Ten Gadgets That Defined the Decade" - from the Canon Digital ELPH camera to the ASUS Eee PC 900 netbook. The article is interesting, and I particularly enjoyed the handful of alternative thoughts provided. But the most fascinating thing to me was that - with all of the items listed - the feedback for the article seems to primarily debate the merits of Microsoft's Xbox 360 vs Sony's Playstation 2! What would your "Top Ten" be for the 2000's? Or do you think this list stands unchallenged?
