I just noticed in the My Profile tab the Gadgets section of your stats lists "Special Gadget Combos found". It my swapping of equips to get Mix and Match I must have unlocked 11 of them.

What's a Special Gadget Combo and what ones are there? Do you get a special effect when using one or are they just gadgets that work well together?

I've found several combos. I can list some of the top of my head but it'll take some experimenting to list them all. I've found no advantage for combos over individual gadgets – JohnoBoy Apr 27 '12 at 10:38
I added the 5 new combos to my answer – JohnoBoy May 24 '12 at 5:04
@JohnoBoy oh, cool, I didn't know if they'd add any more for Flash and such – Ben Brocka May 24 '12 at 12:09
They added five more, I still dunno if there's an advantage when equipping a combo or not – JohnoBoy May 24 '12 at 13:19
@JohnoBoy Probably not, but I'll test them once I actually have the money for them – Ben Brocka May 24 '12 at 13:25

The Special Gadget combos give a special title in the Gadgets section on the gadgets screen before you play again. Here are all 25 combos and titles I've found by trying all combinations. Please note that I've used the game's order of gadgets and avoided duplicates, because combo X + Y equals combo Y + X:

Air Barrys and Nerd Repellent gave me credit for one also. – Fluttershy Apr 27 '12 at 18:28
@Fluttershy just checked, doesn't give a special combo name – Ben Brocka Apr 27 '12 at 22:37
@BenBrocka It didn't give me a name, but it gave me 1/50 for Mix n' Match. – Fluttershy Apr 28 '12 at 0:34
@Fluttershy oh, any combination at all counts for Mix N Match, these are "special combos" as listed on the user profile (not the achievements page) – Ben Brocka Apr 28 '12 at 2:42
@BenBrocka Ah, I see. I apologize for the mix-up, and thank you for the clarification. – Fluttershy Apr 28 '12 at 2:44
