The onslaught of year-end round-ups continues with CNET‘s “Best mobile products of 2006.” I’m not quite sure why a camera is considered “mobile” but I guess the car makes at least a bit of sense (it’s an automobile, get it?).

IBM’s Rod Smith, VP of emerging Internet technologies, says the mash-up technology which is gaining popularity on the Web will soon become an equally important business tool. The trend will start in middleware suites, then move to IT dashboard programs and finally reach application client software for end users, he predicted.
