Ten cool gadgets you can't buy in the United States just yet.Ten cool gadgets you can't buy in the United States just yet.

This particular list is rife with iPad and iPhone alternatives (all of which seem to be running some flavor of Android).  The two lone and notable exceptions in my opinion seem to be this tiny camera, pictured in thumbnail to the left, and the ever peculiar Ant Watch (fifth slide in).

Five things that will make e-readers a whole lot better in 2010.Five things that will make e-readers a whole lot better in 2010.

Here are the Cliff's Notes for the lazy folks: touch capability, color, flexibility, better software and more contrast. I'd like to add the word 'iPad' in there as a sixth thing that will be a contributing factor to making these devices better as well.

That's quite an interesting user interface that Microsoft has come up with for this device and I wonder how useful it will actually be in day-to-day use. Also, I appreciate their underlying message/tactic of designing the gadget to be the complete opposite of the iPhone.

I would probably purchase the nose gel dispenser only because it reminds me of watching Nickelodeon's Double Dare way back in the day. I would probably have to hide a flag somewhere up there to complete the experience.
