It has been a year of ups and downs for InternetGumshoe and for the webOS and Apple fans.
The Tech industry changed a lot in 2011. We have seen several technology giants fall (including HP and RIM) and Apple grow to the biggest Company in the world. It was also the year that Steve Jobs passed away.
InternetGumshoe grow massively over 2011 as we expanded to cover webOS as well as Apple products as we focused on the best in the Tablet market place.
We have seen webOS go from a brillant product line announcement in the early part of the year, to a lack luster release with poor advertisement to the hardware being pulled weeks after release, and finally webOS going open source at the end of 2011, with no hardware on the cards in 2012.
Apple released some “Speed Bump” products with the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4S. Some great products if you did not own an iPad 1 or the iPhone 4, but not enough if you had these already. People wanted the iPhone 5, but as we predicted it was not going to happen in 2011. iOS has gone from strength to strengh, but iCloud has had a rough road with it not quite living up to the “It just works” Apple catchphrase.
Android has seen massive fragmentation over 2011, but finally showed signs of getting on track with Ice Cream Sandwich, but it looks like 2012 will have to be the year that things may get ironed out.
So what does 2012 hold for InternetGumshoe and the Tech world, well we will cover that in tomorrows article.
