A roundup the latest technology that has made us watch more, click faster, download, upload and simply geek out.
In Living Color2 of 16
Barnes & Noble’s first foray into the land of eReaders is a bonafide success. The elegant piece of technology beat out the Kindle with its color display, Pandora music application, a full Web browser as well as a selection of games. For half the price of the iPad, it’s proven to give Apple’s prodigy a worthy competitor.

For the photo enthusiasts, the Sony Alpha Nex-5 camera is a must-have when it comes to small, mirrorless digital cameras with interchangeable lenses. It promised and delivers high image quality without all of the bulk.
Hands Free Fun4 of 16
Look, ma, no controller! Play ping-pong with no paddles, kick a soccer ball with your foot and dance up a storm with the world’s first controller-free video game. It’s the coolest game console yet.
Big Screen5 of 16
First our computers got smart, then there were smartphones, and now TVs are getting in on all of the smart fun. Access your social networks, get on-demand news and keep your seat on the couch with this year’s most-coveted TV.
Hand Held6 of 16
Now, if a businessman said “I had them eating out of the palm of my hand,” he probably meant it literally. Whether you’re projecting a PowerPoint presentation or a family slideshow, the Pocket Projector is your go-to mini gadget.
Shake Charge7 of 16
The energy-efficient community is all abuzz about the nPower PEG, the world’s first kinetic energy charger. Place the PEG in your backpack or purse, and as you walk or run the PEG stores your kinetic energy. When your phone needs a boost, simply plug it and press charge.
In Control8 of 16
The idea of controlling multiple gadgets in the home with one remote is nothing new. However, the Harmony One remote with its color touch screen and large compatibility makes it the only one on our dream list.
Screen Time9 of 16
When this smartphone was unveiled, the Droid X flew off the shelves at record speeds, causing Motorola to have to increase production. iPhone users had questioned their purchases, and rightfully so as the Droid X’s speed and crystal clear video play were hard to beat.
Motion Picture10 of 16
Pocket cams are all the rage these days, and Kodak has one of our favorites with the PlayTouch. LCD touch screen display, easy upload to YouTube and Facebook, and 4x zoom make this a must-have for a year of digital videos.
Buddy System11 of 16
One of the most popular phones of the decade received a much-needed upgrade with this Bluetooth iPhone case featuring a sliding keyboard. Now you have the option of typing on the touch screen or on the physical keyboard.
Crash Pad12 of 16
The iPad has found a home in the first docking station with alarm, Bluetooth capability and radio. It’s like a mini-television, radio and computer all in one and it’s easy to access on your bedside table.

We've welcomed the first 4G phone ever with the HTC Evo 4G. The fastest smartphone on the market blew users away with quick download speeds, instant Internet access and awesome apps.
Stunner Shades14 of 16
Talk about fashion-forward. Gucci is moving in on the technology world with this pair of aviator 3D glasses. Watch Avatar and Alice in Wonderland in true style and at the height of tech-savviness.
Flip Flopper15 of 16
This is the convertible on everyone’s list. No it’s not a red hot car: it’s the red-hot gadget with innovative flip-hinge design to transform a laptop into a tablet. It’s the ultimate two-in-one, and the low price tag makes it a true life-changer.
Cable What?16 of 16
Ditch the cable box and those restrictive monthly contracts with the Apple TV. Rent movies and TV shows commercial-free, stream movies from Netflix and enjoy music in the newly redesigned look.
