El Reg's review of reviews

2005 all wrapped up

High performance access to file storage

If you can still remember 2005, you've probably had a very, very quiet Christmas.

Luckily, for the rest of you, El Reg’s editorial team not only managed to stay conscious just long enough to not only record the highlights and lowlights of 2005, but to wrap them up in a series of easily digestible packages.

So, if your Christmas celebrations have obliterated all your memories of the EU’s schizophrenic attempts reform software patent laws, just drop in here to relive the whole sorry saga courtesy of Mark Ballard.

And if that doesn’t restore your faith in the (in)ability of governments to keep their hands off technology, Kieren McCarthy, details the US’ database of excuses for not handing over control of the internet to a more, er, neutral body.

Gavin Clarke reminds us how paradigms continued to shift in Silicon Valley, as the software industry proved the well of buzzwords shows no sign of running dry.

If that leaves you suffused with a rosy glow, don’t worry. John Leyden reminds us that if the industry stays true to form each new buzzword will likely mean ten new security flaws

You could just unplug yourself if you want to stay safe. But of course, they won’t let you. Who’s they? The telco/mobile operator/broadband/broadcaster conglomerates, which as Tim Richardson writes, are currently coalescing faster than you can say decreasing consumer choice.

But let’s face it. You’ve probably just thrown out the wrapping paper on last year’s hottest gadgets. You’re hardly going to tune out now, especially when you see what the vendors are planning to pop under next year’s Christmas tree
