We're not going to jump up on our "new media" pedestal and claim that Time Magazine
is irrelevant or anything, but man, stick to what you know. Time's gadget of the year list includes some commendable choices to be certain -- but seriously, not a single industry re-defining netbook
, multi-million selling iPhone 3G
, or 1080p-capable EOS 5D Mark II DSLR
in a top 10 list of 2008 gadgets? Puhlease. Seems that voting is still open -- while you can't change the list you can certainly have your say as to whether Peek's eMail-only handheld
should be voted above T-Mobile's Android-powered G1
(by a margin of more than 5 to 1) as the best gadget of 2008.
