2013 was a big year for consumer technology really. New products were launched just about every week. My buddy Alex Hillsberg at Finances Online summarized the success or failure of all these new gadgets in this interesting INFOGRAPHIC showcasing the top gadgets and tech of 2013
He divided the various products into three broad categories:
- Winners: They’re a cut above the rest. Best in class. Clear standouts.
- Contenders: Would have been winners, but beaten to the tape by millimeters.
- Game changers: There’s something to them that might upset the old order and start a whole new way of doing things.
- Clunkers: Bright ideas when they were rolled out, but consumers didn’t think so.
