2016 - A retrospective look into the year gone by2016 will come to an end today. Being a technology site, I would want our members to ask how did the year fare in their view?
In my view, the year gone by has two biggest news. One of them is the fire and explosions in Note 7. The issue created a serious dent in Samsung's reputation. Maybe it will take much effort on the part of the company to clear the problems created by the catastrophe.
The second, in my view, is the shutting down of Cyanogen. The most beloved custom ROM has ceased to exist with the sunset today ( in fact, it has already shut down). We hope that the concept would carry on with the LineageOS that promises to continue the legacy. However, until that happens, it is a dreaded end for the geeks who loved to mod their operating system(To be frank, I am one of them - with my four year old Samsung Galaxy S3 running on Android 7.1.1, thanks to Cyanogen).
I welcome my fellow techians to share their views on the changes they observed in the past year. Be specific to the year in terms of technology alone.
