We discuss our personal tech hits and misses of 2011; what we loved, hated and was overrated. Also, Scott and Ty weigh in on what will most likely be going on at CES 2012; the who, the what, and the why.
The best GPS you can load on your phone, how often you should change your oil in the real world, don't trust that self-braking car with your life (or someone else's) and adding remote start and seat heaters the right way.
Ok, kids, it's the last Roundtable of the year, so let's wrap things up by talking about CNET Reviews' big year-end extravaganza, the CNET 100.
It's a great feature with 10 great lists, like "10 disappointments," and "10 forgettables," among the usual stuff like, "The winners," and "The beautiful ones."

Today on Buzz Out Loud we are joined by the Rumor Has It girls Karyne Levy and Emily Dreyfuss. The Galaxy Nexus has crash landed in America and SOPA is set for a vote on amendments today in the Washington. We play a round of Into It..Not Into It and discuss what the world searched on Google in 2011.
The Galaxy Nexus goes on sale in Australia while Verizon promises us it is still on track to go on sale in the U.S. this year. We have 2 weeks left and we're placing bets. We take a look at a $99 Ice Cream Sandwich Tablet with a $60 shipping fee and we analyze which Android Apps are the most popular.
This week we run down the best battery life laptops of 2011, and you'll never guess what the No. 1 system is. Ty pops in with some TV buying advice and clears up the whole LCD/LED thing, while Scott offers last-minute holiday gift ideas. Also, check out this demo of the OnLive app playing high-end PC games through an iPad.
