Always the Last to Know - Hottest Gadgets of 2008

For those of you who got CA$H from Santa and are looking to spend it (and boost the economy a little), may I present a geek fantasy: Hottest Gadgets of 2008.

I am DROOLING over the Livescribe, which may be just about the coolest thing I've ever heard of.

Hey I actually have a few of those thingies! The Storm is pretty hot stuff and the Flip video cams are great as well. They're no Tesla sportscar, but alas...

i am quite fed up with current generation of gadgets - all based on single-purpose built and power hungry chips. New (much hyped but still promising) technologies such as stemcell computing are readily available so let's hope for a change for better soon...

@Ben - how did I know you'd have some of these?

@zii - I'm of two minds about single purpose gadgets. On the one hand, lots of stuff to carry. On the other hand, all-in-ones usually sacrifice functions for convenience. And I kind of like the somewhat disposable nature of cell phones, given how often I drop mine and all the pieces go flying off.
