Top IT stories of 2010
By  Mark Sutton Published  December 23, 2010

Despite general doom and gloom over the global economic situation, it's been another busy year in the technology industry. 2010 saw the launch of some stand-out new technologies, more acquisitions from the major players, a few top-level management shake-ups, and the cloud hype cycle reaching unparalleled heights.

The year also saw a growing interest in the local start-up scene, more moves to boost regional connectivity, and and the continued tenacious growth of the industry in the Middle East, even in the face of constrained IT budgets.

Here is's closer look at the biggest IT stories of the year, both in the Middle East and on the global stage.
