Rather than give you a potted version of how the year progressed, here's the articles and galleries that you chose to read in your thousands this year (according to our analytics system).
Note that we've ignored "generic" pages (such as the Technology front page itself, which is the "most-read" for the entire year, because so many people start on it). That means that well-read pages such as the Ask Jack blog (officially, 13th for the year among articles and galleries) get left out.
You might wonder too at the lack of games content in these lists. The reason for that: most people come to the Guardian's games coverage directly to the Games blog (officially, 4th most-read page) or Games page (7th most-read); if you combined those together then the "games" category would be the third most-read page (after the Technology page and the topmost article here).
So without more ado let's look at the top 20 articles.
1: Apple tablet launch: live coverage
Steve Jobs's January introduction of the "magical" product. Part of the interest no doubt sparked by the fact that so many people had contributed their own ideas about what it would be called and what size it would be - which, notably, were mostly correct, indicating the wisdom of the crowd in action.
2: Apple WWDC liveblog: new iPhones and software - and the rest
Remind us again about how nobody's interested in Apple stories?
3: Pac-Man 30th anniversary Google doodle turns homepage into game
Retro delights. If you want to play Google's Pac-Man it's still there.
4: Apple iPhone 4: countdown to the press conference
Aka "antennagate", in which, as Charlie Brooker put it, we discovered that the iPhone is too advanced for the human hand. Free bumpers for all!
5: iPad 'newspaper' created by Steve Jobs and Rupert Murdoch
Though not yet released.
6: The Apple tablet: the experts' view
Ahead of the iPad's launch (the name not yet being known), we rounded up the opinions of those who can be relied on to have reliable opinions. Interesting to read in retrospect.
7: Can Apple's tablet do it again?
A week ahead of the iPad's launch, I examined the key question: what the hell would a tablet from Apple look like, and what would you do with it? Again, interesting to read in retrospect (especially given that the guessed-at pricing is double what it turned out to be).
8: LimeWire shut down by federal court
The long-running saga involving the file-sharing software finally ended.
9: Everything you need to know about the internet
It's surprising this wasn't more well-read, to be honest. Look! Everything you need to know!
10: Online voyeurs flock to the random thrills of Chatroulette
Oh, you shameful lot, flocking to the random thrills of articles about people flocking to the random thrills of online voyeurism.
11: Call of Duty: Black Ops - review
The year's biggest game? Certainly in terms of readership.
12: The 100 essential websites for 2010
From the tail-end of 2009.
13: Hello Kitty notebook PC gets bling from Swarovski crystals
Actually from June 2007. If this notebook had sold as well as the article has been viewed, it would be a latter-day iPhone.
14: How I became a Foursquare cyberstalker
The darker side of location-based services.
15: Does a Mac need anti-virus protection?
The answer might seem obvious, but it led to an enormous debate.
16: Apple iPhone 4: an object of rare beauty that leapfrogs the competition
Stephen Fry in June gets just a teeny bit excited about the iPhone. Obviously, this was before anyone had thought to make phone calls while holding it in their left hand.
17: Ricky Gervais quits 'pointless' Twitter
From January. Twitter somehow stumbled on without him: by June it was up to 190m users and growing all over the world.
18: How we learned to love Photoshop
Twenty years old, and now used as a verb (though never in a complimentary sense), to the dismay of Adobe, its owners.
19: 'Had it crashed? Or was it being sarcastic?' Charlie Brooker on the iPad
Try comparing his reviewing style with Fry's.
20: Microsoft sues Motorola over Android - and all the other mobile lawsuits
Includes one of the ugliest graphics of all time (our famed "explosion in a spear factory"). Busy lawyers have long since made it out of date.
And then we have the Galleries - picture-based entertainment, which often tell stories in ways that mere words cannot.
1: Google Street View awards 2010
Britain's best-loved streets, as voted by the public.
2: iPad deconstructed
What's inside that thing. A lot of it is batteries.
3: When Photoshop can get you in trouble
Disastrous Photoshop editing. Has to be seen to be disbelieved.

How Steve Jobs showed off his new moneymaker, from the Yerba Buena Arts Center in San Francisco.

Can you believe that we've only been able to tell people we're on the train for a couple of decades? Here's what we used to do it with.
8: Norman Rockwell, Saturday Evening Post stalwart, celebrated with Google
Quite how Rockwell would have illustrated the Google generation must, sadly, be left to the imagination.
9: The best technology moments in film
Chosen by you, dear readers, and thus more accurate than any other galleries about the best technology moments in film found elsewhere.
10: E3 2010: Gamesblog*s 15 most-anticipated games
