Computer World has published an article extremely interesting
about products which can be arguably defined as "big flops", all of
them related to the IT world, obviously... Do you remember DAT
audio players? Net PC? Iridium satellites / global communications?
The article is sort of a dive in the past twenty years of frantic tech
development, it is just natural that some idea proved themselves
worthy, while some others were simply not good for the market..
5 pages long, and definitely worth reading: by the way, did I mention
that on the last page there is the possibility to pick some more of
this "timeless" flops??? Take the online survey, and find out....
