TIME’s Best Inventions of 2008

Attempting to put our past behind us as quickly as possible, TIME has released what they feel are the best inventions of 2008. While there’s some pretty wishy-washy lab-only stuff on the list, we’re glad to see a lot of cool hardware made the cut. Some of our favorites are: The Tesla roadster proving electric cars can be fun. IBM breaking the petaflop barrier with LANL’s Roadrunner. The Large Hadron Collider for getting everyone scared about physics all over again. Have a look at the list for many other tech highlights from this year.

    The best one is #40: The Seven New Deadly Sins. Sin number 6 is “accumulating excessive wealth”, the Catholic church has accumulated more wealth than any other organization in the entire world. Good to see that they are still hypocrites.

    I beg to differ: I love that they listed Dr. Horrible as an “invention” — it certainly is one of the best.

  3. How about best inventions of 2009? Is it other modern car on the list?
