This podcast was originally recorded on December 17, but we're republishing it today in case you missed it since we're off through the end of the year.

For today's show, Brian, Gabe, and Jack got together to talk about the biggest stories of 2013

Here's a quick rundown of what we covered:

  • We started out the year talking about the Microsoft Surface RT.
  • Brian is annoyed by the iPhone's autocorrect feature.
  • Samsung KNOX was announced.
  • VMware launched Horizon Suite.
  • Brian wrote "The merging of desktop virtualization and Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM). Welcome to the new new end user computing."
  • Pretty much all EMM vendors now do both MDM and MAM.
  • We heard rumors about "Mohoro"—Azure-hosted DaaS from Microsoft.
  • VMware released Horizon Mobile for Android.
  • With improvements in graphics and storage, two major barriers to VDI adoption have been solved.
  • XenDesktop 7 arrived at Citrix Synergy.
  • Jack's book was released.
  • Android thin clients from Dell/Wyse and ViewSonic were another recurring theme this year.
  • We spent half the summer and fall talking about iOS 7.
  • At VMworld, we heard about VMware-hosted DaaS, vSAN, and Mirage supporting VDI. A few weeks later, VMware bought Desktone.
  • By the end of November, Gabe declared that 2014 would be the year everyone talks about DaaS a lot.
  • BlackBerry was a huge topic of conversation all year long.
  • Amazon announced Workspaces, its DaaS offering. We consider this to be the biggest news of the year.
