What do you think is the product/gadget of the Decade (from 2000-2009)?

I say Broadband - as everyone uses it from buying online to talking to long lost friends on Facebook.

Broadband (ie: 2MB) came in 2002-2003, before that was the good old dial-up

Broadband was around long before 2002 :thumbsup:

playstation although its now in its 15th year

iphone..case closed

Windows XP for me

The XP was the most advanced system when it came out, and I would say all electronics now are based on it ie: Digital cameras were complicated to download via serial port, but then USB 2.0 was used/invented

MP3 music to download took forever, until Broadband became faster, sadly windows 98 could not support fast broadband too well.

Personal choice thou

iphone always no.1 but close second is Sky+HD :santa:

WiFI

Couldn't imagine using my laptop without it.

IPHONE no doubt.

DVD, it was released in 1997 however only become officially commerical around 2002/3 when its rentals overtook VHS tapes.................

or the LCD flat screen TV............
