O Brave New World . . .

. . . to have such gadgets in it.

David Pogue is out with the 2010 Pogie awards, honoring the year's best ideas in personal tech. The awards rate mention here because the big winner comes from financial services: a cell phone app for depositing checks. No longer need we resort to hand delivery or the mail to put paper checks in our accounts.

Some of the runners up were equally awesome. (Imagine taking a photo of a shop sign in Copenhagen and seeing it turn into the same sign translated into English!) Check out Pogue's entertaining video version of the awards.
