Top 10 Headlines from 2012

By Lori Castle, Editor in Chief — December 26, 2012

The top headlines from 2012 reflect how quickly mobility changes. For example, in the No. 4 story about the top tablets in the enterprise, Apple was only on the third iteration of the iPad and the mini was not even mentioned. There were no Surfaces or phablets or Aakash-2s, or many others. Not only didn't many of the devices exist, they are now in places that they never were before — like the cockpit of major airlines.

Nonetheless, our predictions for 2012 were mainly accurate, and though not a top headline, still an interesting read in light of all that's happened. It seems the pace is only getting faster, so we won't venture to guess what's in store for next year. The headlines and stories that follow show how far things have come, and we can only imagine what a 2013 headline roundup will look like.
