For every iPad there is a Blackberry Playbook. For every iPod, there is a MiniDisc recorder/player. For every technological breakthrough, there are tons of technological failures. You don't hear of the failures as much because--well--people just don't care. But we do!
Over the next couple of months, we are going to highlight many technological failures. This first list includes one of the biggest technological disasters of all time, the Blackberry Playbook, which was the big star at the 2011 CES show. Unfortunately, it only delivered to retail in beta form and was practically useless. The beautiful screen was nice to look at, however.
Another failed product was Web TV. Not only was the product practically useless, but spending $20 a month for a service you could use for free on your computer didn't cut it with consumers. Web TV soon went where it deserved to go--into oblivion.
Here is our first list of five technological failures. The products aren't in any particular order; they have all failed equally!
