14. Dish Hopper with Slingbox
Dish's Hopper made our Best Gadgets of the Year list because it offered massive space and allowed users to "hop" over commercials. Awesome. To up the ante, Dish partnered with Slingbox to create a new version of the box that lets people access content from their Hopper via their smartphone or tablets wherever there's an Internet connection. Hopefully it doesn't get sued for this one.
