2) Wine --- With a struggling economy, we're not willing to shell out $30 for a bottle of wine. Wine sellers are adapting

3)Laptops that will replace your desktop

4) Android tablets --- Thanks to the $199 Kindle Fire, manufacturers are scrambling to be competitive

5) Car rentals --- Agencies have an excess of cars that need to be filled. Look for discounts.

6) eBook Readers

7) 3D HDTV's -- They're a tough sell. They cost more and you to also purchase those crazy 3D glasses

8) Homes --- Home prices are down and unemployment is still high. It's a buyers market through 2012.
