The tech industry is defined by high-profile success stories. Everyone knows someone that uses an iPhone, a Windows PC or Facebook, but for all those products and services that struck gold, there are plenty that have gone out with a whimper.
Many of those deserved to die the slow death - just thinking about the dreadful Nokia N-Gage sends a shiver down the spine - but on the flip side, there are numerous failed products that actually held promise. I was a big fan of my MiniDiscs back in the day, and more recently I was disappointed to see Windows Phone go the way of the Dodo. Heck, you might even go as far as to say that some ill-fated products were really rather good but fell foul of poor execution or too fierce a marketplace.
In a way, it's fascinating to think about all the wonderful products that might have been, so for this week's question let us ask: which doomed tech products were actually good? Whether it's hardware or software, let us know which products you reckon deserved better using the comments facility below.
