    I agree with quite a few of the gadgets you have suggested. I definately think the iPad 2 is worth being up there – I have one and am so glad I decided to purchase it. I wasn’t sure at first but it’s so easy to carry around and is like a laptop, just better!! I also think the Nintendo 3DS is a brilliant invention, especially with the 3D screen! It’s not just great for kids but adults too.
    Last week I went to the International Technology Show at the Excel in London and listened to a talk on ‘the top ten gadgets of 2011 so far’ and have written a blog article on it, it’s interesting as some of the gadgets mentioned aren’t too well known, but really are impressive, and obviously there are some more well known ones in there too. http://www.lucidica.com/blog/random-technology/the-top-ten-gadgets-of-2011-so-far-2/

      The animals responsible for the most human deaths in history (and today) is of course the Mosi

      There were an estimated 225 million cases of malaria worldwide in 2009. An estimated 781,000 people died from malaria in 2009 according to the World Health Organization’s 2010 World Malaria Report. There are some 10′s of thousands of snake deasths putting all species together!!
