Microsoft; Amazon; Seahawks; space; advice for techies; and more.

Our most-watched videos of 2016 spanned a wide range of technology topics, from touring an Amazon distribution center to an on-stage interview from the GeekWire Summit.

The top clip, measured by total views, was our demo with the new Microsoft Surface Studio, the company’s “high-powered touchscreen computer and super-charged canvas,” as GeekWire’s Nat Levy reported from New York City.

Next up was Amazon revealing its Prime Air airplane freighter, a Boeing 767-300 jet that is part of what will eventually become a fleet of 40 planes, transporting cargo between Amazon’s distribution centers for delivery to customers.

Space was a popular subject this year, as most-watched videos included a recovered Apollo Saturn V F-1 rocket engine and a night sky atlas tracking light pollution.

Our readers also enjoyed hearing advice from folks like Stack Overflow Joel Spolsky, who explained why developers need uninterrupted time to concentrate, and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who dished out leadership advice.

Speaking of Amazon, another top video was our tour of Amazon’s 1 million square-foot fulfillment center in DuPont, Wash. on Cyber Monday, the company’s busiest day of the year.

Unsurprisingly, an election-related video was also among the most popular.

Seahawks stars, PAX, and huge tanks? That’s must-see TV:

And rounding out the top 10 was an interview with GeekWire Chairman Jonathan Sposato and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, who shared his thoughts on a number of topics.
