By  |  Thursday, January 1, 2009 at 7:39 pm

Last month was a wonderful one for Technologizer from a traffic standpoint–we had more big hits than in any month to date. But in case you missed any (or all!) of ’em, here are the top ten, in order of total page views to date:

1. Apple Patentmania: 31 Years of Big Ideas: I discovered that you could use Google Patents to look up old Apple patents, and found the drawings they contained fascinating. I thought other folks might, too. They did!

2. Patentmania: The Golden Age of Electronic Games: I couldn’t stop digging up old patent drawings, so I collected ones for Simon, the Atari 2600, Vectrex, and other old games into a gallery.

3. iFrauds: The Fakest iPhones Ever: I went to a lousy liquidation sale and wanted to kick myself until I saw that it was rife with weird imitation iPods.

4. The 13 Greatest Error Messages of All Time: A story from back in September that seems to be the closest thing Technologizer has to a timeless classic so far.

5. State of the Browser Betas: A Technologizer Cheat Sheet: A quick rundown on what’s up with the next versions of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, and Safari.

6. Is Swoopo Nothing More Than a Well-Designed Gimmick?: Ed Oswald’s musings on an oddball auction site turned out to instigate an ongoing discussion that just keeps going and going.

7. The T-Grid: BlackBerry Storm vs. iPhone 3gG: A quick spec comparison between two leading touch-screen phones.

8. The 13 Other Greatest Error Message of All Time: A sequel to top story #4, based on nominations from folks who read the first article.

9. The Best of Frenemies: A look at tech players who can’t live with or without each other.

10. Windows 7 First Impressions: Hey, This Looks Pretty Good!: My take on the first prerelease version of Windows 7 to escape from Redmond.
