AllThingsD Co-Founder Walt Mossberg signs off, new venture coming January 2014

With the recent news that the editors of AllThingsD are leaving to form their own tech journalism venture, all that’s left is saying goodbye. Here’s Walt Mossberg’s final post:

This is my last column for The Wall Street Journal, after 22 years of reviewing consumer technology products here.

So I thought I’d talk about the dozen personal-technology products I reviewed that were most influential over the past two decades. Obviously, narrowing so many products in the most dynamic of modern industries down to 12 is a subjective exercise and others will disagree…

Some readers will complain that Apple is overrepresented. My answer: Apple introduced more influential, breakthrough products for average consumers than any other company over the years of this column.

The new startup, rumored to be led by Mossberg and AllThingsD co-founder Kara Swisher, will be announced on January 2, 2014.
