We’ve had a gadget-packed year, but 2010 is about to be put to bed and, in the morning, a new year will greet us with the bright, fresh promise of ever better technology for our lives.

In 2011, we expect 3D to be bigger and cheaper, with the technology making its way into more TVs and even the Nintendo 3DS.

Computers will become faster when Intel launches its new line of Core processors early in the year, while the iPad will not only receive a refresh, but also a bunch of competitors.

Of course, we’ll help you stay on top of everything that matters in your world of tech, with more news, reviews, and guides in 2011.

For now, though have a brilliant New Year’s Eve, and make sure to stay safe out there. We’ll see you in the New Year.
