What Gadget Makes You the Happiest?


It's no secret that most guys love gadgets of all shapes and sizes. But of all the electronic gizmos you own, which one really makes you the happiest. If you're like the respondents in a recent survey, that gadget would be the Nintendo Wii.

The Gadget Helpline, a service in the UK that helps consumers with broken electronic equipment, asked 2,500 of its callers "what gadget makes you happiest"? The Wii topped the happy gadget list, followed by the iPod and the iPhone 3G.

With the Mac Book notebook computer coming in at #7, Apple had three gadgets in the top 10. In addition to the Wii, Nintendo also scored with the Nintendo DS at #8.

The success of gaming consoles in making us happy shouldn't be much of a surprise. The Wii, in particular, enables us to socialize with other people easily, bringing it out of the realm of electronics.

Here is the complete list of gadgets that make us happiest:

1. Nintendo Wii
2. iPod
3. iPhone 3G
4. Xbox 360
5. Blackberry
6. Sky+
7. Mac Book
8. Nintendo DS
9. Tom Tom 930 Satellite Navigation System
10. Sony PRS-505 Reader

Is your favorite gadget on the list?

I've got a 360, iPod touch, and a DS and my 360 makes me much more happy than my other gadgets. It's newer to me by a few years, but it really is amazing.

Only thing I'd add is my Apple TV. It's perfect for what I need it to do. Buy US TV shows, watch them in HD, and play Movies every now and again.
