    I cannot believe the LaserDisc is not on this list! It is only dubbed the biggest technological flop of all time.

    10: Despite that little incident, ASIMO is the world's first and the most advanced two legged robot. So this was actually considered an advancement, not a failure. And things like this happen at the beginning of a development of something big.

    9: Yeah, this was a failure and a copy. But production ceased in June 2012, not 2011.

    8: Dell wasn't the only company to recall their laptops because of this problem. Since Sony makes the batteries, Apple recalled 1.8 million Sony notebook computer batteries.

    7: Not only would it not recognize the handwriting, this sack of shit cost $700!

    6: Since IBM was the powerhouse company of computers in the 1980s, 500,000 units of IBM PCjr were shipped. It was an impressive amount in that time frame and in that time. Nonetheless, it was a commercial failure.

    5: It flopped after 1 year as well. Again, it sold a not too bad amount of units; 100,000.

    4: While the N-Gage was criticized for the design of the buttons and shape, a lot of people seemed to like it. Plus, it was designed for both dialing AND gaming. On a last note, N-Gage sold 3 million units. Gameboy Advance SP sold 81.51 million units. I don't think the ratio is 100 to 1.

    3: Other problems were that the thing was a bulky 12 lbs, cost $3,000, and the battery only lasted for only 2 hours!

    2: You should really pay attention. They discontinued it in 1996, not 1998. Also, that is NOT the Microsoft Bob logo. (Believe me, I used it before.)

    1: It's funny, because Sinclair C5 was developed by some British millionaire named "Sir Clive Sinclair". When it was introduced, it received a less than enthusiastic reception from the British media. And to top it off, it could be priced up to £5,000

    I'm actually surprise Microsoft only made it twice on this list, because the number of failures Microsoft has had could fill a museum.

    The failures Microsoft had with their tablets alone they tried to come out with before the iPad is amazing.

    I'll never forget the "Doonesbury" comic that focused on the Apple Newton's huge handwriting-recognition flaw.

    Mike writes "Hello JJ, how are you?" on his fresh new Newton.
    The Newton then reads it back in text as "Hell jars, Howard yoyo?"

    Need to bring back the ZUNE only bad timing for it. The product it self was and still would be far more superior to anything out today. Music and vid played on it was AMAZING…

    I love to read. I'm a bibliophile. I'm even a published author! But having to scan the profuse dialogue between the footage from above and manage my vision accordingly was exhausting. I also lost interest regardless of this on the old news that we've all heard about, pretty much. Add some audible dialogue and make the knowingly lazy YouTube watcher not have to "work" so hard at your video. Just sayin…. I like the music though 🙂

    ngage was ahead of its time. i remember making my own mp3 ringtones. FM radio built in and could actually record from audio from the radio station while listening to catch that hot new song.The ngage2 is what the ngage1 should have been. no taco talk.

    Oh my god the graphics in this video are so confusing! It's hard to read, really busy and the moving video clips doesn't help.

    I didn't have the original N-Gage… But I did have the N-Gage QD.

    Though the list of games for it was impressively not great and I had more fun with an NES emulator on it than any of it's actual games.
