XM Radio was a big hit when launched, but if you liked a particular song, well, good luck. There was no way to purchase it. The 2006 winner went to new-fangled radio called the Pioneer Inno. a handheld device which merged XM Radio with content you could purchase and download with the click of the then somewhat novel “buy” button. At the live event, the audience looked skywards and gave the award to the Celestron SkyScout, which used GPS technology to help identify any visible object in the sky. They paved the way for personal planetariums.
