TIME Mag names Apple iPad ‘Top Gadget of the Year’ with MacBook Air #3, iPhone 4 #6 and Apple TV #7

TIME Magazine’s Top 10 Gadgets for 2010 List has Apple’s revolutionary iPad firmly in #1 position.

Also on the list is Apple’s 11-In. MacBook Air (#3), Apple’s iPhone 4 (#6) and Apple TV (#7).

Unfortunately, TIME also lists some real duds, making the list less than a ringing endorsement and more a randowm crapshoot. Hey, at least they got 4 og them right!

The widely-panned “Google TV Via Logitech Revue” at #4, TIME? The total flop “Google Nexus One” at #5? Seriously?

Full list here.

  1. My iPad 3G/WiFi was worth every penny! iOS 42 was icing on the cake. They repurposed the Orientation Lock button which now serves as the mute button, but replaced it with a software version to lock the screen’s orientation, so I’m completely happy.

    Multitasking kicks neck!

  2. Great take, MDN, couldn’t agree more. Nexus 2 that just came out and yet to tested with millions sold and offeing nothing ground breaking over iPhone 4 is just sheer cluelessness. In that regard Time has been consistent and should soon join Newsweek and the FSJ.

  3. @Gerry,
    Time has always presented the “person of the year” as those who have had the most impact. It’s not an endorsement of actions.
    In general, though I think Google TV will be flop, I think the Kevin Bacon commercial is one of the most entertaining commercials on TV.
