Computer products are evolving at lighting speeds and 2009 has provided us with some great new computing inventions. US-based magazine Popular Science published a list of the top 100 new product releases for 2009 on their online portal, PopSci, on November 12.

The products contained within the list were selected due to their potential ability to change the way we think about computer technology.

The winner of year's Computing section was Wolfram Research's WolframAlpha - a search engine that uses context and probability to compute a solution to your search query instead of providing you with a list of possible internet locations where you go to find the information.

Apple's Macbook Pro laptop, a social networking and real-time collaboration program called Google Wave, Clearwire's super-speed wireless WiMax internet technology and Nvidia's powerful ION chipset were among the products that made it onto the Popular Science "Best of What's New: Computing" list for 2009.
