What the Tech!
Wired.com is often the first to break the top tech news. Conversely, here is one entry from its Top 10 Tech Things Nobody Cared About in 2011:

3-D TV
2011 was supposed to be the year of the 3-D television set, but faced with high prices, clunky glasses, and crappy cinematic selection, it ended up being the year of not caring about 3-D television even a little bit.

Headline News
A lot of things happened over the past 365 days. But often, the real news was in the headlines. Acidcow.com compiled a list of Top 50 Funniest Newspaper Headlines From the Past Year. Here’s the article we were dying to read:

“Woman Missing Since She Got Lost” — Chicago Sun-Times

Do You Know Where Paris Is?
