Hardware, Embedded Systems Gizmodo has compiled a rogues' gallery of buggy, disappointing, and just plain pointless gadgets that all made their mark during the 2000s. If you've been following computing news over the past ten years, you probably remember lots of them, and may have been personally disappointed by some of them. Some highlights: Segway, wearable PC, n-Gage, Rokr.

Sitting in the rear passenger side of a '97 Nissan Altima, I was hit by an F-350 going about 45 MPH ;)


Somehow I only managed to crack a rib (with my elbow)and tear a few muscles in my back.

Luckily, I'm 23 and bounced. Built kinda solid I suppose ;)

Back will never be the same, that's for sure ;)


Anyway, on topic, I am also sick of the Sony only junk. Memory stick? Why?! ATRAC 3?!

Get with the standards. It's cheaper than rolling your own.
