The most useful posts of October 2009

October 2009. The H1N1 pandemic attacked the young and vulnerable all over the world and threatened to take down the internet as well. The fascination with smartphones continued, although in Vermont a bear approached a hiker just to destroy her iPhone. Another Facebook redesign meant another user rebellion, this time led by a 14 year old. Microsoft hoped for a lucky 7 and Twitter went list crazy. Preparing for an uncertain holiday season and a new decade, web marketers turned to these posts as the most useful of the month.
