It's the end of another year on the iGeneration blog -- and the first for me working as a writer for ZDNet -- but what were the most popular posts this year?

1.) How many tweets does it take to date a porn star? (No surprise here). A U.S. student secures a porn star prom date through Twitter - the school objects. 

2.) The shame of owning an iPad. An iPad on the London Underground - how embarrassing. 

3.) 50 resources for iPad use in the classroom. A roundup of educational articles, apps and tutorials for educators looking to integrate iPads into the classroom.

4.) Valve: Windows 8 is a 'catastrophe' for PCs. First it was Gartner -- despite its retraction and somewhat tetchy record on commentary -- but then Valve has chipped in claiming the forthcoming operating system will be a "catastrophe."

5.) 50 QR code resources for the classroom. How can QR codes be used effectively in class?

6.) Google, Amazon, Twitter and Facebook consider 'nuclear' blackout. Internet giants considered a 'nuclear option' against the SOPA bill.

7.) Anthropologist 'confirms' Apple is a religion. Worship me, for I am Apple. 

8.) Apple v. Samsung timeline: The guide to what's happening. Legal jargon aside, what is actually going on in the high-profile Apple v. Samsung case, and how did it start? Let's take a look at the timeline.

9.) BTjunkie closes its doors 'voluntarily'. BTjunkie has now joined the ranks of the fallen torrent search websites.

10.) TeenTech Weekly: .xxx domains, federal law, webcam suicide and the Raspberry PiA weekly roundup of Generation Y and student resources you may have missed.
