Features, Office "I am not a cynic by nature, but years of experience in the IT world have compelled me to make sure that everything passes the smell test. As a result, I can often tell beforehand whether I am hearing marketspeak or the real deal. For instance, 5 minutes after I figured out what Larry Ellison's network computer was, I knew it would never be successful.

So with that in mind, let's revisit the top 10 overhyped, overmarketed, overbsed (if there is such a word) computer industry events of 2005."
