Bloomberg's Best Photos 2012: Global Technology. Images of vast diversity were captured in 2012 by our ever thoughtful and creative photographers: water drops falling across the Facebook logo; Spanish self-propelled aerial platforms reaching for the sky; and NASA's space shuttle getting its nose out in front in Florida. With striking acuity, Bloomberg's photographers honed in on both the technology companies and the technological products that affect our lives each day, see their work here in Global Technology.
