Barrack Obama victory speech

Talking about speeches of 2012, you cannot forget maybe the most seen/heard speech of the year. Actually I feel like there isn’t much in the speech except praising the US, but that is what the audience wants. A good performer always knows his audience. If you are not annoyed of all the praising and general politics, check out the most viewed speech of the year 2012.

Kevin Costner’s emotional speech at Whitney Houston’s funeral

Maybe the most sorrow filled speech of the year, still managed to be a little funny. Costner brought some laughter into those dark times. If you missed it, check it out now. Rest in peace Whitney.

Apple introduces iPad mini and iPad 4

Even though it is always fun to hear about new products, this time the big audience wasn’t that pleased. People did feel like they’ve put money to an already outdated product when they just bought “the new iPad”. Now Apple introduced 2 new iPads even though the newest was just few months old.

Jolla presents Sailfish OS and UI at SLUSH 2012

Jolla, the company that rises from the ashes of Nokia, is doing a great job. Just about a month ago they released their first OS, UI and SDK called Sailfish. The launch happened at SLUSH 2012, event arranged by Startup Sauna. The presentation didn’t reach as much people as others on this post, but it is still worth mentioning. Jolla is a newcomer on mobile business, and it is always fun to root for the underdog. I hope that they will find their spot on mobile markets.

Microsoft surface presentation

Many of you remember this. And of course you do. This demo effect went viral quite fast. Somehow people tend to remember failures quite good. Actually when I started writing this blog, first thing that came into my mind was this particular event. But even though I remembered the demo effect, it doesn’t necessarily mean that I remember Microsoft in a negative way.

Nokia & deadmau5 “This is Lumia” light show

This really isn’t a speech, but still it is a presentation of some sort. This is the second time that deadmau5 is promoting Nokia products, and I must say that the show is quite spectacular. And hey, is there any better way of wrapping up the year 2012 than a light show? ¬†Full video can bee seen here.
