The 21 Biggest Tech Disappointments of 2011

Quote:
It happens every year: the hype, the commercials, the anticipation building until finally, the day is upon us. No, we're not talking about Christmas. We're talking about product release dates, which like Christmas often involve a heady rush of excitement - and sometimes involve a heartbreaking let down worse than a gift of socks.

Perhaps it's particularly bad for tech writers because we're on the front lines, thrilled to have something new to handle and review and write about. Perhaps it's worse for consumers, who shell out their hard-earned cash to wind up with a dud. So, we've chosen twenty-one things to avoid, lest you wind up with a shoddy build, user experience or product. It's our gift to you, a no BS take on the things that crossed our desks, the things that didn't live up to our expectations, and the things that just plain shouldn't see the light of day (SOPA, we're looking at you).

Strange. It seems to be all there in Firefox but not in IE9 for now.

Ah, Siri - even with the über slick advertisements, the itty-bitty *sequences shortened* disclaimer down the bottom was a guarantee of fail.

And after a 5 min hands on with my sisters IP4S, even I had underestimated exactly how much the PR *sequences shortened* was *truth very much stretched*. I knew it was going to be bad - but not that bad.

My sister didn't really care for my several "I told you so's"

I see confusion - what is the source for said confusion?
