This year has been a very exciting and newsworthy year to be sure. From tragedies that are still on our mind, to deaths of tech icons such as Steve Jobs, to the new competition of Google and Apple, new inventions of the Google glasses, Facebook going public, landing on Mars to free falling from space, a president reelected and everything else in between.
