Much has changed since the 2008 installment of "New Products for Pediatrics." In 2009, the US economy went into a deep recession that prompted government spending of historic proportions. This year, America's foundering banking and automotive industries received bailouts, and some Americans traded in their aging automobiles via a "cash for clunkers" program. In 2009, while Congress debated remaking America's healthcare system, pediatricians and other healthcare providers confronted a new flu virus strain. And to the joy of some pediatricians (at least this one), in 2009 our computers evolved with faster chipsets, larger hard drives, and high-speed solid state disks, and we had the release of not just 1, but 2 64-bit computer mainstream operating systems. We do indeed live in interesting times.

In this year's new product review, several fascinating new products for the pediatric office will be presented that should be of interest to you. Also, we continue last year's update on applications for your computers and mobile devices.
