    CNET's Top Tech Flops (video)

    If you just want the list, I'll save you the trouble of watching:
    1. Virtual reality
    2. Speech recognition
    3. Information appliances
    4. Pen computing
    5. Heads-up displays
    6. Gallium arsenide
    7. Digital watches
    8. Super-conductivity
    9. Bubble memory
    10. Manned space travel
    They had a little trouble with their spellcheck (see #10 on attached screenshot). At least I assume that they meant manned space travel, since maned space travel means putting lions in spaceships!

    We've already seen the CNET List of Apple Flops, so know we have their overall opinion. But what Tech Flops did CNET forget?

    I'm not sure why they included GaAs in the list, since it's a vital part of every cell phone on the planet.

    They didn't bother to explain their reasons for #6 through #10.
