iPhone is The Top Gadget of 2007 and More Top Picks

In no real surprise to anyone, the Apple iPhone has won Time Magazine's Gadget of the Year Award for 2007. While I'm a huge fan of my iPhone I don't think its fair to give it the award without mentioning some of the apps that make it great. For me what really makes the iPhone great is Gmail. I mean honestly, without Gmail's imap, the mail app would be sub par.

Here are some other notable winners that stand out to me.

Top Video Game - Halo 3
No real surprise here, its the best game I've ever played.

Top Website - Lemonade.com
Sadly I have never heard of this before now but the concept is cool. Social recommendations that allow you to earn money for your recommendation on various products.

Top Sports Match - Fiesta Bowl 2007, Boise State 43 – Oklahoma 42, in OT
This was an amazing game and I know so many of my friends missed it b/c they went to sleep before it was over. Tied for #1 should be Appalachian State beating Michigan this year.

(1) Thoughts on iPhone is The Top Gadget of 2007 and More Top Picks

I feel that Time Magazine's Gadget of the Year list ranks winners according to the popularity factor rather than the technical achievements. For instance, the iPhone, although a good device, still falls short in terms of functionality as compared to similar Nokia models. Likewise, Halo 3 didn't raise the bar of gameplay that games like BioShock or Call of Duty 4 achieved.

The similarly between the iPhone and Halo 3 is certainly their heavy marketing campaign.
