December 12, 2012

New technology has contributed to an "epidemic" of workplace distractions, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Traditionally snooze-worthy tech sectors like mobile security and payments, data analytics, and storage are suddenly seeing millions of dollars in new investment as investors temper their interest in social media, The New York Times reports.

Facebook has confirmed it plans to stop allowing users to vote, and will change its privacy policies, The Washington Post reports.

CNET rounds up a list of its 100 most important tech stories of 2012.
