2014 AS IT HAP­PENED: THE YEAR IN RE­VIEW

YEAR IN RE­VIEW

TekSavvy Insider - - Contents -

And just like that, 2014 was over. It feels as though no sooner were we all singing Auld Langs Syne and ush­er­ing in the birth of the new year, than it was all over and we found our­selves gear­ing up to do it all over again for a brand new twelve months. It’s enough to make you feel old, this time stuff! So with the year that was now firmly be­hind us, what bet­ter way to re­mem­ber it than with a quick re­cap of how it all un­folded.

But be­fore all that starts rolling in, let’s take one last look back at the year that was, and send 2014 off with the cel­e­bra­tion it so def­i­nitely de­serves…
