On the Gadgets of the Year panel at CE Week 2011, Clayton Morris from Fox News got Ross Rubin of NPD Group, Peter Rojas of gdgt, Andrea Smith of ABC News Radio, Mark Spoonauer of Laptop and Josh Topolsky of ThisIsMyNext to chat about the 10 most game-changing gadgets and trends this year. Here are their picks.
1. Software/App is the New Gadget
They kicked things off by talking software -- from Windows Phone 7 Mango to the appeal of the Apple App Store -- because that is defining (or outright making or breaking) gadgets right now.

2. Eye-Fi Memory Card
An Eye-Fi card looks and feels just like a standard SD card but contains an embedded Wi-Fi chip that allows users to upload photos and videos instantly and wirelessly from camera to computer or even their phone, without having to physically move the card from one device to another.
That said, the card only works with select cameras and camcorders so check for compatibility before buying. The Eye-Fi is available from major retailers like Best Buy starting at $40 for 4 GB.
