Another year is at an end and what a year it was! Full of optimism and hope, pessimism and disappointment and everything in between. The tech world had peaks, plains and potholes all throughout the year and sometimes all at once.

This week we will take a look back at the year 2007 and list a few events that both changed and shaped the present state of the IT industry. You may laugh and you may cry or you may simply roll your eyes. But on one thing you will probably agree. It was a year that was all its own. Now, sit back, relax, and reflect as we take a final look back at 2007 – The Year In Review.
