 Nintendo Wii Beats IPod and Becomes Gadget That Makes People 'Most Happy': British Poll
The Nintendo Wii has beaten the iPod to become the gadget that "makes people most happy", according to a new British poll.

According to the survey of over 2,500 callers to The Gadget Helpline, a phone service that consumers having problems with broken electrical equipment can call for help, the results underline the increasing popularity of games consoles, once considered a hobby for young men.

The Wii, made by Japanese giant Nintendo, topped the poll, with Microsoft's Xbox 360 coming in fourth place and the hand-held DS console coming in eighth place, reports The Telegraph.

The 'crowned' gadget allows players to use a hand-held controller to simulate a sport, such as golf or bowls, pretend to ski jump or even play the ukulele - activities far removed from the fast cars and shooting games favoured by software manufacturers in the past.

A spokesman said: "With the world now quite literally at our fingertips, we're fast being robbed of the need to socialise with other humans, but the success of games consoles shows that there remains huge appeal in the concept of sharing time and space with friends and loved ones."

The top 10 gadgets that make people happy are:

1. Nintendo Wii

2. iPod

3. iPhone 3G

4. Xbox 360

5. Blackberry

6. Sky+

7. Mac Book

8. Nintendo DS

9. Tom Tom 930 Satellite Navigation System

10. Sony PRS-505 Reader.
