What would you guys say are some of the worst tech blunders? I would say: 1. Intel Netburst (Pentium 4) architecture - The Williamettes were actually outperformed by the Pentium 3s they were supposed to replace. It ran so hot it was worthless as a mobile CPU. The Prescott was almost as big of a shitchunk as the Williamette. And it was routinely beaten by AMD's CPUs throughout its lifespan. The Athlon T-birds, XPs, and 64s were just downright better than comparable P4s. The one bright spot was the Northwood C, but netburst was so bad in general, who cares. This was a crap architecture intel should have dumped. Thankfully they eventually turned things around with the Pentium M and Core architecture. 2. AMD Bulldozer - It's slower than the Phenom II in many cases, and the Phenom II was already nothing to get excited about. It was supposed to compete with the Sandy Bridge chips, but it's not even comparable to Nehalem. 3. Geforce FX Series - The FX5800 was known as the dustbuster because it was so loud. These cards really underperformed and were beaten badly by the Radeon 9700/9800 series. The Geforce cards had been nothing but amazing before this, so this really sent nvidia back to the drawing board. 4. HP Touchpad - nobody gave a crap about webOS and it was too expensive. Sold like crazy though once they dropped the price to $99. 5. Rambus - This shit was ridiculously expensive. We're talking extortion prices. Like $1500 for 64mb of ram. DDR was also fast and was way cheaper. 6. Netbooks - These things were all the rage a couple of years ago. But they were so underpowered you couldn't do shit with them, and they had crappy keyboards. People eventually caught on and stopped buying them. 7. HD-DVD - Toshiba started a stupid format war to push their inferior format, which delayed HD adoption by several years. Thanks assholes! Apparently making the crappiest laptops on the planet wasn't enough for them. 8. Windows Me - Worst. OS. ever.
