The Best Products Of 1999

Better living through technology? Believe it. Our annual best products demonstrate the impact of tech on everything from food to financial services. How about a low-calorie candy that's good for you? Or an ultra-low-emission German luxury sedan? Or a fabric that can cool you off or warm you up as the need arises? High tech even adds to home entertainment fun, with products like Sony's MD Discam, whose digital movies can be edited in the camera. If your idea of entertaining fun is trading stocks online, new, all-in-one plans like Merrill Lynch's Unlimited Advantage account give you vast services for one modest fee. What more could you want? How about a cup of yogurt with a built-in spoon?
