Some Paradigms Never Shift

Those of you who remember the gilded age of the late 1990s (and before) will simply love an article that's been circulating on the 21 biggest tech flops.

Our favorite tech flop (which did make the article) is speech recognition software, if only because your editor got a bit of a scoop at Comdex some years back by reporting that Microsoft wouldn't be including speech recognition in whatever the next version of Windows was at the time. Hey, it might seem ridiculous now, but it was pretty darn exciting at the time.
