Which tech battle of 2010 got you most riled up?
So here we are, looking at the end of 2010, a year that's been fairly exciting in the personal-technology world. Led by the iPad, tablets became a common sight, to the Netbook business. E-readers got more affordable and more widespread, and many phone makers stepped up to take on the iPhone 4, which was leaked in the spring, dramatically, after an Apple tech left a prototype in a bar.
But where there's innovation there's often conflict. Companies like Apple and Google and Microsoft are again going head-to-head in many markets., , and even e-books were competitive battlegrounds.
The comments on Crave have at times been like combat zones, too, with our wonderfully engaged readers going back and forth over, worst, most promising, dumbest, and so on.
