As we shut down for the holidays we wanted to say a big thank you to all our Techday readers.  What a great year 2014 has been. From gay CEOs, sexist CEOs and mean CEOs to women at the top, disappearing ISPs and our whole office fighting it out on their Fitbits, we’ve had a great year.

Here’s a look back at our top stories of the year.

1. Apple CEO Tim Cook announced he way gay and the world went crazy.

2. MoutterGate: Spark chief exec Simon Moutter came under fire after suggesting an employee should pretty much piss off - on the company’s intranet.

4. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella took some heat after he said women shouldn’t ask for payrises.

5. Orcon released a controversial Facebook video earlier in the year, which lead to a battle of the telcos over broadband throttling with Spark.
