Exactly a year ago, if you would have said Taco Bell breakfast or Facebook stickers, we all would have said: "Whutt?"

Now, I will be honest with you, I haven't heard of some of these "things," but you might have.

Either way, It's was a good year for, well, STUFF.

As the Huffington Post report says:

Each year, creative geniuses gift us with amazing new products that change our daily routines. Sometimes these inventions occupy so much of our time we forget that they were just recently not a part of our lives."

Here are some of the attention-grabbing innovations that made our 2014:

HBO's "Last Week Tonight With John Oliver"

Initially, people were skeptical when John Oliver stepped down from "The Daily Show" to launch his own late night show on HBO that would recap the news once a week. But he delivered with some incredible takedowns.

Serial Podcast

was it "Mail Kimp"? Is it all just a big promotion for Best Buy? These are the questions that plague the minds of 1.5 million listeners an episode.

The iPhone 6 Plus

Remember when we were all about phones getting smaller? The 5.5-inch screen took some getting used to, but now what would we do without the giant size? So long, iPad.

There's also that Kim Kardashian game and Taylor Swift, but really? Talk more about those phones that are now bigger than TV's! Wonder what we will be marveling at next year?
