Overview

Each week thousands of San Diegans turn to Phil Baker's weekly column on personal technology for valuable insights and recommendations. While the playing field is constantly shifting we thought there would be significant value in bringing a year's worth of articles together in one place, with an easy to use index.

In this special edition we have organized Phil's columns into six categories that include:
1. Products for the home or home office
2. Products and services for mobile devices
3. A round-up of 2011's "best product" articles
4. 2011 new product reviews
5. Phil's commentary on technology companies, events, news and products
6. Automotive-centric personal technology products and services

We have also combed the archives to link to references to San Diego area companies mentioned in Phil's columns.

So whether you are a regular reader, or this is your first introduction to Phil's wit and wisdom, keep this collection handy as a reference when navigating the ever-changing landscape of personal technology.
