You’re kidding – How can the top gadget of this decade NOT be TiVo?


By web gangsta | Published:

Best Gadget HackingSo PASTE Magazine has come out with their list of the TOP 20 GADGETS OF THE PAST DECADE (2000-2009), and while Web Watch certainly agrees with the sentiment that such a list entails, we seriously question the validity of any such survey that places TiVo anywhere lower than #1.

Granted, TiVo did make it to #2 on the list, and even the most casual observer should be able to guess what #1 on the list is without even looking — and considering that it can be strongly argued that the #1 item on the list has been equally popular and influential, Web Watch really shouldn’t complain too much at all.

That said, the real question is determining how much of a geek or nerd you are by how many of these items you have owned over the years.  Web Watch clocks in at a solid “11″, for those of you keeping score.

Here’s the list:

  1. (We told you – take a guess)
  2. TiVo
  3. Garmin GPS
  4. Vodaphone 3G computer card
  5. Wii
  6. Amazon Kindle
  7. iPhone
  8. Slingbox
  9. Blackberry
  10. XBox
  11. PS3 and Blu-Ray
  12. Apple Airport Express
  13. Dyson Air Multiplier
  14. Sonos Music System
  15. Flip Video Camera
  16. Bose Noise-Cancelling Headphones
  17. USB flash drive
  18. XCelerator hand dryer
  19. the iTrip
  20. Jabra Bluetooth

Now if only that company that made the #1 ranked gadget would come out and buy TiVo already, then we’d be super-happy.  That one is a no brainer, really.
