The good, the bad, and the annoying

We've seen the 25 Worst Tech Products of All Time, and we've seen the 50 Best Tech Products of All Time. What else is there? Well, there's the 20 Most Annoying Tech Products:

Unlike PC World's 25 Worst Products of All Time, irksome products aren't necessarily bad, buggy, or dangerous. But they all have one or two traits that make you want to wrap them in 200 pounds of steel cable and toss them off the side of a boat. From stupid features and rude behavior to brain-dead design and poor corporate policies, these 20 products have truly annoyed us over the years, and some continue to do so.

I feel your pain. This list, unlike the previous ones, was taken from a reader poll, with some amusing comments from them added in. Link via Dwight.

AOL was not annoying at all. Although I never subscribed, they were always sending me free CD cases that I still use.
