Reflecting On 2012

by Ben Bajarin   |   December 24th, 2012

What a year 2012 has been. From some of the most exciting and historical product launches, wild and ill-concieved acquisitions, ugly court battles, and more, has made this year one worth reflecting upon. One thing is certain and agreed upon by the Tech.pinions columnists, that we are entering one of the most–if not the most–innovative time in human history. We are still only scratching the surface with personal computing. We expect the next decade plus to be both a land grab of opportunity for those ready to solve problems for the mass market of tomorrow, or a tragic wasteland of once industry titans who failed to understand and embrace disruption and re-invent themselves on a regular basis.

We the Tech.pinions columnists felt like this week was worth taking time to reflect on the last year and think about the new year and we encourage our readers to do the same. So we are all taking the week off from the daily column and will resume next week. Until then, we thought we would share some of the most read and most talked about columns from 2012. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
