The greatest tech lemon of the 2010s

Technology, the application of scientific knowledge to the practical aims of human life or, as it is sometimes phrased, to the change and manipulation of the human environment.

Google Glass

Google Glass is the encapsulation of an item relatively revolutionary. Not many in the tech world uncertainty that enlarged reality wearables will in the end be huge, however in the event that the world isn’t prepared for them in 2019, it without a doubt return in 2014. Google Glass was a great idea, yet the equipment was essentially excessively languid, unwieldy, and frightening to ever get on.

Windows Phone

Breaking into the cell phone advertise is famously troublesome, much more so when you’re attempting to make another stage by and large. Microsoft had a head begin once again both Apple and Google, what with the pervasiveness of Windows Mobile in the PDA period, yet it just couldn’t make up for lost time to Apple and Google’s Rampant achievement.

In spite of the fact that many idea Microsoft may in the long run take a stab at making another Windows Phone, the reality the organization embraced Android for its up and coming Surface Duo telephone makes it obvious the organization has abandoned carrying Windows to your pocket.

Fire Phone

  • Amazon Fire Phone audit: an imperfect compact store attempting frantically to stand out enough to be noticed
  • Amazon could be probably the greatest player in the cell phone showcase, however the organization screwed up its first endeavor so gravely, it quit attempting.

The telephone’s pseudo-3D parallax screen was a contrivance, forking off Android was an awful decision for application support, battery life sucked, and it had no convincing highlights past helping you purchase stuff from Amazon. What’s more, beyond a shadow of a doubt: the telephone’s primary reason for existing was to get you to purchase stuff from Amazon.

HTC First AKA the Facebook Phone

Recollect that time Facebook kinda sorta attempted to break into the cell phone advertise with its ‘Facebook Home’ interface? Better believe it, me neither until I ran over it again for this article.

Coolest Cooler

  • The Coolest Cooler is the encapsulation of crowdfunding turned out badly. It once held the record for most crowdfunded Kickstarter venture ever, at over $13 million. But five years after dispatch, there are still supporters standing by to get their unit – units which ended up being quite unremarkable.
  • More regrettable, the organization reported for the current month it had come up short on cash and would not have the option to convey the rest of the units or discounts – which evidently incorporates 33% of the first supporters.


  • No informal community has come as close as Google+ once did to really challenge Facebook. Google+ propelled to enormous energy because of an astute framework that gave you more power over who to impart data to and superb photographs support, also Google’s clout.
  • In any case, it was likewise a piece too entangled to even think about using and like such a large number of Google extends, the organization blundered its long haul execution. It was unceremoniously murdered in 2018 after a monstrous security oversight prompted an expected 500,000 records being undermined.


  • Quite a long time ago, MoviePass offered film devotees the capacity to pay $10 every month and consider nearly to be film as regularly as they’d like. It appeared as though it would renew filmgoing for another age. Things being what they are, you can’t make a benefit by enabling individuals to see boundless motion pictures for minimal over the cost of a normal single film ticket each month.
  • MoviePass instantly came up short on cash, infuriated its couple of residual supporters by always changing its advantages and estimating, and at one point previously shut down in light of the fact that it couldn’t pay its lenders.

Wii U

  • While some portion of me is delinquent to consider the Wii U a ‘flop’ given a couple of superb titles like Super Mario 3D World, Super Smash Bros 4, and both Skyward Sword and Breath of the Wild, the support just never got in transit the Xbox One and PS4 did. The generally poor designs and odd controller didn’t do much for individuals, and the support sold ineffectively.
  • For some time, it looked like Nintendo may be confronting genuine difficulty; it didn’t have the corporate support Microsoft and Sony did if there should arise an occurrence of a failure. Be that as it may, as is commonly said, what doesn’t murder you make you more grounded; Nintendo took a portion of the Wii U’s best thoughts and transformed into the Nintendo Switch – the rest is history.
