More seriously, if you look at what those 962 voted for, it seems obvious that most of them did not own what they voted for. It looks like a laundry list of the most hyped products.

I believe you've missed the obvious: What is the worst gadget of the year? The IPhone 4S!

I would not take this result too seriously. Apparently, you could only vote for items from a very short list. Where was the Samsung Galaxy S2, as a notable example? On the other hand, it's just a poll, never claiming to be a scientificly rigirous, statistical survey and even if I can't get excited over the iPhone 4s, I understand why a lot of people are and it the 4s is a fine example of clever engineering (and marketing!).

I'm not an iPhone 4s owner yet, but probably very soon. Just bought one for my daughter for Christmas, and have spent some time playing with it. It quite possibly IS the coolest gadget of 2011. It will make a nice companion to my iPad2 :)

Is in non-metallic? Maybe it does heat up in the microwave to slice through very frozen ice cream easier. Sometimes when I want to avoid bending a spoon digging out hard ice cream I run the spoon under hot water first. Try it in the uwave along with a cup of water for loading and see what happens. Maybe it really is a translation error, if so let's patent a real uwaveable ice cream scoop. (But that was another thread)

Bit off-topic, but we just bought a "microwaveable ice-cream scoop". It does its job scooping ice-cream just fine, but I'm at a loss as to why someone would want to microwave it..... I think they meant to say "dishwasher-proof" (chinese English) but who knows...

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
