Complex Roundtable: The Most Fascinating Tech Stories of 2012

Gadget Worship

Narrowing these things down to just one piece is always very difficult, but "Fever Dream of a Guilt-Ridden Gadget Reporter" was so different from most other tech stories that I couldn't help but pick it. Full disclosure: I'm partially employed by Gizmodo, but that's not at all why I chose this piece. Rather, I chose it because I think Mat Honan does an amazingly poignant and economical job of getting to the heart of the disenchantment many people feel about the world's growing and pathetic gadget worship but can't articulate, and all from the center of the Consumer Electronics Show, the nation's hugest tech conference.
