Reflect back and look ahead

Over the past few weeks, we've taken a look back at the top 10 downloads of 2010, made some predictions for 2011, and rounded up lots of great software for your new systems.

The end of the year is the perfect time to reflect back on the achievements of the past 12 months and look expectantly ahead to the potential advancements coming in the near future. So we here at we did just that.

For starters, we rounded up our top 10 most popular downloads from 2010. The site served up billions of downloads in 2010; check out the roundup and you can find out which 10 Windows programs were the most popular throughout the year.

We also made some predictions for CES 2011. Software and services may take a back seat at the Vegas-based trade show, but they're becoming more prevalent--particularly in the mobile space.

Finally, we wanted to make sure all of your systems--desktop and mobile alike--were up to date. To that end, don't miss out on our New Year, New PC package, where you'll find great deals on software and have access to some of the best exclusive offers available. Plus, we've updated our starter kits for iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry devices.
