You know the saying, "You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find a prince"? That can be applied to technology development, too. Not every creation can be an iPhone, after all. You might not have even heard of some tech flops; they came and went so fast, such as Microsoft WebTV (a merge of TV with the World Wide Web), Microsoft Zune (an inferior iPod) and HD DVD (Sony Blu-ray won). Though we wouldn't have many of our beloved tech devices without some of these tech failures, it's fun to scoff at the losers.
