DiscoveryNews Tech Team’s Favorite Gadgets

In July 2011, Discovery News Tech expanded its coverage to include gadgets.

We added three new bloggers to our team and began rolling out reviews, slideshows and blog posts about the latest, greatest gizmos. To celebrate our team and the one-year anniversary, we decided to pull together a personal list of the gadgets we use on a regular basis. Some of these devices are sophisticated electronics but others are simple plastic tools. All of them make our lives easier and may give some insight into each of our personalities. This slideshow is by no means a endorsement or a review of these products — it’s for entertainment purposes only.

See each of the team’s favorite gadgets here.
