The Perfect Thing 2020 (Premium)


At the end of every year, tech blogs lazily pump out “best of” lists culled from back-end site queries. And, yeah, we’ll get to that here soon enough. But in keeping with my description of the Xbox One S as “the perfect thing” four years ago, I’m wondering if we can advance the state of thinking on such things and hand-select the best of the best using more subjective criteria. Do any personal technology products from 2020 qualify as “the perfect thing,” even remotely?

Not exactly. But for all the terribleness of 2020, there were some products that I reviewed that came close. As with anything subjective, these choices, are of course, specific to me and my needs, and many will disagree. And that’s fine. Feel free to chime in with the choices you prefer.
