Yesterday we took a look at what we consider to be the Most Innovative Services available on the web, and today we’ve got our sights set on products. After some careful deliberation we managed to come up with three amazing products that could drastically change the way we use technology in the future.
The 2007 CyberNet Award for Most Innovative Product goes to…
–3rd Place: Eye-Fi—
The Eye-Fi SD memory card is really the first of its kind. What makes it so special is that it has a wireless chip built-in so that you can transfer photos to your computer without ever plugging in a cable.
It’s a little pricey considering the 2GB model will chew up $100 out of your wallet, but the convenience it has to offer is unparalleled.
–2nd Place: Microsoft Surface—
Some people shrug off the Microsoft Surface table as another toy that will never see the light of day. From the videos it does seem a little too good to be true, but it will be well received by people when it starts to find its way into hotels, restaurants, and gathering places.
The digital age that we’re in is all about planning for tomorrow, and I think the Microsoft Surface table does just that. It will likely take several years for businesses to start adopting the technology, but I believe it will take off once people start seeing the possibilities the Surface has to offer.
–1st Place: Apple iPhone—
We don’t write about Apple products all that much, but that doesn’t mean we don’t recognize good things when we see them. The iPhone has opened up an entirely new market for phones, and since it’s release in the middle of 2007 we’ve seen several touch-screen clones try to eat away at the iPhone’s popularity.
Even if you’re not a big Apple fan I don’t think there is any denying that they did an incredible job of implementing an intuitive multi-touch screen. There are definitely some things that the iPhone lacks, such as a 3G connection and GPS capabilities, but many users are still satisfied with all the other things that it does extremely well. In February developers will be able to begin creating real applications for the iPhone, which will add a new dimension to the device.
