Virtual Boy, Microsoft tablet, Dell phablet, and more
We all love innovation...when it works. Unfortunately when it comes to technological breakthroughs, timing is everything. For instance, did you know that Microsoft showed off its tablet PC way back in 2000? And who could forget Nintendo’s attempt at a VR headset with its Virtual Boy in 1995?
Duke Nukem Forever, Windows ME, Google Wave, and more!
Predicting the next big thing is never easy, especially when it comes to technology. It's easy to lose count of the number of times Microsoft or Googlehave promised to create products that will revolutionize our lives. Granted, occasionally the corporate gurus are right – smartphones and wireless networks being two great examples. But for all the successful launches, there are as many products that don’t quite get it right. It could be a fantastic idea on paper, but when it comes to fulfilling the dream, they become nothing more than technology failures.
