In this post, I will talk about the BEST of  the BEST in technological inventions in the all the different fields that technology is required and lets start with the category of the Internet!

the Internet

The Best of the Best in the category of the internet is the INVENTION of the INTERNET!!!
The internet was invented in the1960's by DARPA the US Army's information and technology department.This year the internet is 50 YEARS OLD this year! I am pretty sure most of the other great inventions will never be what it is now if there was no internet.

Apple Inventions

The Best of the Best in the category of Apple inventions will go to..... the whole iPod series!!!!! Before the iPod, Apple was already well known for superior technology and workmanship (and a much higher price too!!) but when the first Apple iPod released on the 23rd of October in 2001, the whole world changed by being able to put 1,000 in their pocket (an interesting fact is that the first iPod had a hard drive of 5GB)!!! This iPod led the way for the iPod shuffle, nano, classic, video, the iPod touch, the iPhone, and the iPad!!!! (plus, there were over 240,000,000 iPod's sold since January 2010!)

Gaming Consoles

The category is pretty controversial but I personally think that the Wii is the best!!! The Wii is the first game consoles that based most of its games with a controller that reads your movements in a three-dimensional space. The Wii  is capable of doing this by having a multitude of sensors in the highly complex Wii remote. The Wii remote has accelerometers and communicates with the Wii with Bluetooth technology so you can go to another room and still be able to play (for example, you can use the free run mode in Wii Fit and you can run around the house!). And if you need one last reason to think why the Wii is the best, there are a lot of acessories that enhance your experience even more like the Wii Motion Plus and the Wii Balance Board.        

Well... thats it for now but if you have any more categories you want me to investigate, leave a comment below!!!

The newest Apple innovation is the Apple iPad. The Apple iPad is essentially a larger version of the Apple iPhone. This device has all the capabilities of an iPhone (except without the phone feature) including WiFi and 3G high speed internet connection, app store, and the iPod function. Editors from Gizmodo (the best technology blog behind this one) says that the iPad will has a touch screen keyboard that is better that the iPhone's but not better that a laptop's keyboard so for those future users that will use the iPad for work, you can connect a Mac keyboard to the bottom of it and it also stands it up and it looks like a mini iMac configuration. There are 6 different iPad models including 3 with only WiFi and 3 with WiFi and 3G ranging in different sizes (16GB, 32GB, and 64GB). The cheapest model cost $499 USD (WiFi only/16GB)  and the most expensive model cost $829 USD (WiFi and 3G/32GB). Click here to see all the models of the iPad.
