The best of 2008 technologies

Reviewing PC Magazine, I find an article that shows the best 100

products of the year 2008. Right now that the Pizza Hut in this town has wireless, here is the summary.


Now they are sorted by category, although it must be admitted that it is now very difficult to separate between what is a PDA and a mobile that brings that and more, as well as between a monitor and a television, which of this is not entertainment ... what to say about what is software, netware and freeware ...

Interestingly, Apple tops the categories for mobile phones with its iPhone, desktop PCs with the iMac, Laptops with the MacBook Pro, and entertainment with the iPod. They are undoubtedly better technologies, although slightly more expensive and with the popular impression that they are for weird people.
