Top 10 Technology Turkeys of 2010 Provide Food for Thought

by Don Reisinger
As the end of 2010 draws near, it's time to think back at the past year and determine what technologies—products, services and components—fell flat in their bid for market success this year. Some of the products that disappointed customers were released in prior years, while others made their debut this year. But in either case, the products and services had a rough 2010 that could make 2011 even harder. As you flip through the following slides, you won't be surprised by some of 2010's biggest disappointments. However, there will be a few surprises along the way that show that not even the biggest and most powerful companies can escape the indifference of consumers and enterprise customers who turned their backs on their vaunted products and spent their money elsewhere. So take a look at some of the products and services that became the turkeys of 2010 and (if they're still available) could fall even farther into disfavor in 2011.
