Ah, the flop. The tech industry has had more than its share, and it's never pretty. Miguel Carrasco has collected 10 of the biggest flops in computing history
, a list which includes four OSes and six machines. A lot of the computers on the list are considered ahead of their time and still have big followings, like the Apple Newton and Steve Jobs' NeXT cube. I have a big soft spot for #3 on the list, the IBM PCjr, which was my first computer. It was a hunk of junk, and several years obsolete by the time I got mine, but nevertheless I have fond memories of it. Both Microsoft and Apple make strong showings on the list, Microsoft on the software side with the likes of Microsoft Bob and Apple with the afforementioned Newton and some others you'll no doubt remember.
