A new poll by PC World Magazine has awarded the "Sony Walkman" (launched in 1979), the best gadget launched in the past 50 years among the smart gizmos.

The "Apple's iPod" has stood a close second in the poll.

PC World has based its gadget ratings reportedly on criteria such as usefulness, design, innovation, coolness, and influence on subsequent gizmos. A spokes-person for the magazine said that only those devices which were relatively small were considered for the listing.

Privileged tech-toys that made it to the "top 10" on the poll are:
- Walkman TPS-L2 (1979)
- iPod (2001)
- ReplayTV RTV (2001)
- TiVo HDR110 (1999)
- Palmpilot 1000 (1996)
- Sony CDP-101 CD player (1982)
- Motorola StarTAC phone (1996)
- Atari Computer System (1977)
- Polaroid SX-70 Land Camera (1972)
- M-Systems Disk-OnKey (2000)
