Probably too late for a 2005 Top Ten list at this point, so, following Wired magazine’s Wired/Tired/Retired list format, here are some things I think are cool, sorta cool, and not cool at all (now that it’s 2006):

Wired: Google OS hype
Tired: Windows Vista hype
Retired: Lindows hype

Wired: The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill DVD
Tired: March of the Penguins DVD
Retired: Paulie DVD

Wired: GP2X
Tired: Playstation Portable (PSP)
Retired: Nokia N-Gage

Wired: YouTube
Tired: Google Video
Retired: iFilm

…Part II tomorrow.
