Remember back in January when netcrap toolbar was number one, no kidding, it seems like forever ago. For the last time this year then let's count down CNET's readers most wanted gadgets. At number 5 the Sony KDL-46XBR4. It's a TV. You may have guessed that from the catchy name. David Katzmaier says it outperformed any other LCD we tested and you liked it too. Coming in at number 4 the Nintendo Wii. The Holidays get closer, the supply get slimmer and your desire grows, as does the size and price of the Wii Bundles. You know, some psych doctoral student could write a thesis on this, probably already have. Up to number 3 the Canon PowerShot SD850 IS. Well, it's not like we didn't plug this thing enough on our Holiday helpdesk marathon, but it really is a great camera and it's been in or near the top 5 for months. Sliding in at number 2 the PlayStation 3, its 66th week in the top 20. It's like the freaking granddaddy of the most wanted list. The price drop certainly didn't hurt interests.
