Congratulations to our 2011 survey winners.  Edmond, Vamshi, and Edward are all enjoying their new iPad® 2s.  Thank you again to those who provided us their input.

As we wrap up 2011, it's a good time to look back at some of our most popular articles of the year. It turns out that our readers also really like our Back to Basics series.  We have included the first five chapters in this issue. We will be sure to do more next year.

Have a fantastic 2012.
