IT & Network Infrastructure : 10 Products That Must Be Killed in 2010
As the year comes to a close, it's time to think back at all the products, applications and other goodies that made 2009 such a great year for those who follow the tech industry. That grouping of viable products was headlined by Snow Leopard, Windows 7, the new and improved iPhone 3G S, and more. It was generally a great year for the tech industry. But that doesn't mean that there weren't some products that left us wishing for more. Some hardware devices that survived through 2009 failed to live up to the hype. Software applications that have lingered for too long still haunted us in 2009. As good as some of the offerings were this year, there were still others that shouldn't make it to 2010. This eWEEK slide show looks at 10 software and hardware products that deserve to die in 2010. These products weren't necessarily released in 2009, but they certainly made a mark in the industry at some point during the year. And for many of these products, that mark was far less than ideal.
