2022: Year In Review


At this time of year I like to look back over the past 365 days and pick out the stories that really got my attention. This year has been only marginally better than 2021, which is another way of saying that the focus on the entire planet was still understandably elsewhere. Having said that, here’s what happened in tech this year:

And now for some stats. The top ten countries that visited my blog in 2020 are:

  1. Canada
  2. United States
  3. United Kingdom
  4. India 
  5. Norway
  6. Australia
  7. Philippines
  8. Germany
  9. France
  10. Signapore

In all almost just over 1.3 million page views were served up this year. That’s slightly up from last year and I feel really good with that number.

And in terms of the top ten stories that were viewed this year:

  1. WARNING! A New Text Message #Scam Involving TD Bank Is Making The Rounds [UPDATED x2]
  2. Review: Bell Home Hub 4000
  3. Here’s How The Last 4 Digits Of Your Credit Card Can Be Used To Commit Fraud
  4. How To Configure PPPoE Bypass On The Bell HH4000 Hardware
  5. Revisiting How To Bypass Bell’s HH400 Hardware With Your Own Router… Along With Some Commentary About ASUS And Bell
  6. Don’t Fall For This Interac Scam That Is Delivered By Text Message [UPDATED]
  7. Hey IT Nerd! Can I Get Rid Of The Check Engine Using A Scan Code Tool?
  8. WARNING: A Geek Squad #Scam Is Making The Rounds
  9. How To Move Your E-Mail And Contacts Off The Rogers Yahoo/Oath E-Mail Platform
  10. Review: Bell Fibe 1.5 Gbps FTTH Internet

The first thing that I notice is that four of the top ten items relate to Bell. That includes two stories on how to bypass the Bell hardware to use your own gear as Bell doesn’t have a proper bridge mode in their hardware. Perhaps they need to take the hint and implement that as this is clearly something that their customers care about. Scams make up another four spots in the top ten. And surprisingly, only one story about Rogers is in the top ten. Though it’s about how to get off their email platform. Which might be a hint that their July outage related issues may still be an issue for Rogers in 2023 as you would not be looking for a way to get off their email platform if you were not looking to dump Rogers as your email provider or your telco.

Now if you have something that you think that should be on this list, leave a comment with your thoughts. Happy new year (hopefully)!
