2018 tech memories

  • Splintering of streaming video services: Star Trek Discovery only on CBS All Access, Titans only on DC Universe, Cloak and Dagger only on Hulu, etc.
  • Crash of the crypto market, return of sane video card prices.
  • 2018 the end of the x86 only windows world? Again
  • Isn’t this every year? — Year of the hack/cyberattack/databreach
  • And??? — Death of Net Neutrality
  • Year of the tablet/2-in-1 PC but they mostly all are terrible
  • 2018 wasn’t facebook’s year. What’s your favorite facebook scandal from 2018?
