The 25 Worst Tech Products of All Time

From the Zip Drive (which I had the displeasure of owning) to the Pippin, from Microsoft Bob to Internet Explorer 6, PC World tacks off the top 25 worst tech products of all time, products that either never served a purpose, were flops, were a bad idea from the getgo, or over time have proven themselves to be some of the worst scourge to ever happen to computing. I personally loved the description of the Macintosh “Portable,” which I’m sure Apple would love to flush down the toilet and pretend never existed, and the scathing commentary around Internet Explorer. Also among the list of horrid products to ever make their way to store shelves was the Sharp RD3D Notebook and the IBM PC Jr., and some software that presses our nerves like RealPlayer (oh how I hate thee) and Comet Cursor.

Make sure to check out the (Dis)Honorable Mention list too, there are a slew of products on that list that are equally upsetting, from the Apple “hockey puck” mouse that shipped with the iMac to WebTV, which some people out there are still faithfully clinging to for some reason. This list is comedy gold, especially if you’ve ever used any of these products.
