The end of another year and time for a customary glance back at the 20 most popular posts from 2010. 5 of our top 20 articles cover aspects of the iPad – a device we hadn’t even seen this time a year ago. It has undoubtedly been one of the single biggest smart home news stories of the year, if not the decade.
Once again the popularity of sorting and streaming our digital media around the home is borne out with 5 entries in the top 20 too and it’s great to see you enjoyed our new ‘My Automated Home” features this year with a couple of those making it to the list as well.
Even it you’re not an animal lover make sure to check out the entry number 9 – The PetPorte SmartFlap Microchip Cat Flap Review, perhaps our wittiest submission of the year!
But at number one, and by quite a margin, is our review of the new version of Plex. With CES just a few days away now and Windows, Linux, Android and LG TV versions of Plex in the works, plus iPad v2, and the first crop of proper Android tablets due – the next 12 months looks as exciting as ever for the Digital Home enthusiast!
