Walt Mossberg’s final Wall Street Journal column looks back on two decades of tech

After 22 years of insightful and important commentary on consumer technology, Walt Mossberg has written his final column for The Wall Street Journal and its All Things D tech blog. Included among his dozen are Windows 95, the Palm Pilot, Googles search engine, and the iPhone. The products chosen werent necessarily big sellers — his first choice on his chronological list, the Newton MessagePad, was an outright flop — but Mossberg believes each of his selections improved ease of use and added value for the average consumer. His tastes and criteria have led to a few arguably strange selections, such as 1997s Palm Pilot included in place of possibly more deserving candidates in Sonys PlayStation or Netflix, but most of his choices were bona-fide game changers.
