I like to do this on the new year - look at the current state of technology and see where we're at - but I'm not aware of any significant advances in consumer technology over the past year. Anything I'd write about - tablet computers, 3D printing, ebooks - was already the case at the beginning of 2012. What's up with that?
The one thing I do know that's happened is that there is now a streaming video service in Australia with a monthly subscription fee, but a very limited catalogue.

PPS - But our tech landscape is still controlled by a very small group of people.
