2011 Spoony Awards: 10 Coolest Things in Mobile Tech
As 2011 draws to a close, there’s a lot of focus on tech that flopped.

To help celebrate these triumphs, I hereby announce the winners of the first annual Spoony Awards, highlighting my favorite mobile tech advancements. The most telling thing about this list is that it’s not so much about the gadgets themselves anymore but the software that powers them.
