When bad technology happens to good people

Via Kimberly, I present to you the 25 Worst Tech Products of All Time. You can mourn the CueCat if you want to, I’m getting an involuntary shudder thinking about PointCast, which our help desk quickly decided it would not support. As someone who makes his living through BlackBerry servers, I suppose I owe them a debt of gratitude for pioneering the concept of push applications, but man, did their implementation suck. As did everything else on that list, so read ’em and weep.

    I almost forgot about PointCast… Boy did that eat up a lot of space.

    I remember PointCast a bit more fondly since I only used it at home. However, between the modem speeds and the hard disk space required, it was certainly a case of a product working better in theory than in practice.

    I wonder, however, if Microsoft will ever live down Bob?
