iPod Touch

Marketed by Apple Inc as a media player, iPod Touch is a personal digital assistant (PDA) and boasting Wifi capabilities, the iPod Touch is the perfect and one of the most popular gadget for students and those on the run. It functions just like the iPhone but without the mobile phone abilities. Available in 8, 16 or 32GB flash memory and with a battery lifespan of over 36 hours of music and 6 hours of video playback, the iPod Touch is suitable for those who need to listen and groove to their music of choice or watch their favorite movies while on a long trip.


Introduced with the “classic” suffix, some consumers prefer the sleek click-wheel designed and easy-to-use Classic iPod instead of Apple Inc’s newest offerings such as the ipod Touch models or the new ipod Nano models. With over 40 hours of music playback and 7 hours of video, the iPod is definitely one of the best media player available out in the market.


With three generations of iPhone out in the market, over 21 million units sold and worldwide sales through the roof, the iPhone is the new darling in the mobile phone industry. The iPhone is more than just another mobile phone, it is a fashion statement and in schools around the world, an iPhone would automatically garner instant popularity. With hundreds of useful applications available for download, the iPhone is constantly evolving with the market with the latest iPhone 3GS. If you already own an iPhone, you can take a look at the free iPhone apps now.


The American made handbag extraordinaire is making waves in the e-shopping community with sales of Coach Handbags and Kate Spade Handbags on eBay going through the roof and sellers making a tidy profit from selling these in-high-demand handbags. Out of ideas of a birthday present for a wife or a girlfriend, women believe one can never go wrong with a Coach Handbag or purse.

Nintendo Wii

While Sony’s Playstation 3 and Microsoft’s Xbox360 were busy squabbling with each other over who boasts the better hardware, Nintendo sneaked from behind with their newest console Wii and with the Wii appealing to a broader demographic, it currently leads the console war between the three companies. With highly addictive and interactive games like WiiSports and exercise games like WiiFit, the Nintendo Wii has been the leader of consoles in 2008 and in 2009, it looks no different.

Xbox 360

After Microsoft announced the price cut of its Xbox 360 console, sales for the next generation console have started trickling in, slowly gaining momentum as it climbs the popularity board in e-shopping sites like eBay and Amazon. With an Xbox 360 console now available for on 200 US dollars, Microsoft looks set to challenge Wii for the console war sales and gain a slight advantage as the Christmas season comes closer.


Personal computers look set to lose out to the sales of laptops again this year. With the introduction of netbooks, mini-laptops that dish out performance almost equaling to the slightly larger laptop, consumers are quickly getting their hands on these laptops as not only are they light, they are small and packs a punch as well. Laptop computers are here to stay.

iPhone 3G

With the iPhone 3GS model newly released by Apple Inc, prices for the 3G is quickly sliding down as consumers are trading off their 3G models for the newer 3GS. For those who want to get their hands on an iPhone, now is a great time to get an iPhone 3G at a slashed price and look good on it as any iPhone looks and feels better than any other mobile phone on the market at this moment.

Digital Cameras

On e-shopping sites, consumers are now trying their hands out on DSLRs instead of the basic point-and-click digital cameras. DSLRs provide camera enthusiasts with the freedom to get the shot they want and exactly how they want it. Point-and-click digital cameras are also popular as newer models offer higher resolutions with more freedom for consumers.

iPod Nano

Apple Inc released the newest model of the iPod Nano approximately last year. The new iPod Nano looks sleeker and is slimmer than its past offerings. With an added accelerometer in the new Nano, owners can now shuffle music by just shaking the Nano instead of clicking or pressing any buttons. A popular choice for those needing a small media player to fit in a handbag or a purse.

The top ten most popular products indeed show that technological products are getting more and more in demand by the worldwide public and with websites like eBay, one can get these products at a steal or a bargain. Blu-ray DVD players, Woman's Shoes, Teeth Whitening Products, and even Real Estate are some of the other popular items sold on eBay.

      These are great gadgets. I have recently converted to ebay and amazon. With all the incentives. Its better to buy most things over the net. Its not what it used to be. Personally, I am planning on buying ipad 3 in the furure over the net. I already have the first generation that's still doing great. I do like the camera on the ipad 2. However, I am going to wait it out.
