Next up in our countdown of the hottest 100 gadgets on the planet is the US video streaming hit Netflix
Oh Dear, Lovefilm. You had the whole of the UK by the palm of your hands, and then you let this interloper in with its wider range of titles, US-backing and more attractive shade of red. Netflix is now the go-to movie service for those not wanting to hand cash over to Sky.
There’s no confusing tiers of access or DVDs to post - it’s just £5.99 per month, every month, for a huge range of top content. We especially rate the Spotify-like integration with Facebook, which lets your friends inspire you by sharing what they’ve set their eyes to.
