As far as companies, hardware, software, etc goes: Apple gets more and more boring without Steve Jobs has been a depressing story. The rise of mobile (cough, cough Circa) as the desktop continues to fall into oblivion. Fitness gadgets like Nike Fuel and FitBit edging more and more into mainstream. Surveillance, Snowden and the NSA with Google/Apple/Yahoo/Facebook all trying to prove they're not working with the government, all the while nobody really cares because they're so locked into social they're willing to keep handing over personal data 24 hours a day. —Anthony DeRosa, Circa (@AntDeRosa)
