10 new things from the new millenium
Way back in 1999, we thought we were so cool.¬† But how cool could we have been without these ten items that weren't even around yet?
1. ¬†iPod--Hype said it would change the way we listen to music. And it did!
2.¬† BlackBerry--Even the President of the United States can't resist.
3.¬† Digital cameras (affordable ones anyway)
4. ¬†Nintendo's Wii--Gamers got off the couch to actually¬†move around to play¬†such tennis, bowling and boxing.
5. ¬†USB stick--Mountains of info on a¬†tiny memory stick. Yippee!
6.¬† iPhone--Not to be confused with the BlackBerry, of course.¬† Thems fightin'words.
7.¬† E-book readers--Bye-bye books? Amazon's Kindle enjoyed a breakout this Christmas.
8.¬† GPS devices--Navigation made easy for those who won't ask fellow humans for directions.¬† Yea, I'm talking to you, husband.
9.¬† Netbook--A new species of computer, maybe not as powerful as a laptop but way cheaper.
10.¬† Firefox--Bringing an open source browser into the mainstream.¬† Now it's loosening Google's stranglehold on Web browsing. A little anyway.
What's your favorite new gadget of the decade?¬† For me, it is the iPod--hands down!
