As you all know, 2012 is almost coming to an end. It has been a year mixed with smiles and tears, cries and laughs, happiness and sadness, innovation and discovery, victory and defeat and a lot more. At Mr. Geek, we believe it has been a special time, as 2012 is the year this blog came into existence. To rewind a little, let us take a glimpse into the recent past and see what pictures defined 2012.
