    Microsoft vista was actually A hug success it set us up for the infrastructure and great seamless details that you don’t realize like overlapping windows how they contrasts each other all those greats different visual details you don’t realize were introduced in vista and when windows 7 came out it was actually just a debugged version of window vista so idk what you are talking and smart watches are everywhere also

    I wouldn't call the Wii a flop. It was popular for a time, but it was then replaced to the WiiU, the first console with a screen in the controller. This lead rise to the switch, one of the most popular consoles ever. By the logic you gave, the Xbox 360 was a failure because a few years after it's release, games were made for the Xbox one instead
    Also, the Apple watch is not a failure. Your argument was "why would you want this information on your wrist when it's already in your pocket," but that's exactly why people like it. Instead of wasting time pulling your phone out of a pocket or bag, it's already on your wrist, ready to check at a glance

    #10. LaserDisc - You guys were right they were to damn expensive. #9. Nokia NGage - It sucked really bad #8. Hoverboard - People didn't care about them exploding or getting hurt. They still sold. #7. Smartwatch - This is one of the best tech that is out there. It never failed. #6. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 - Samsung had the right Idea but why would you release a product that had such an unstable battery. They were doomed from the start. #5. Nintendo Wii - What the hell are you guys thinking? Wii is one of the best selling game consoles. #4. Segway - I was on a Segway in Aruba just last summer. You don't see alot of them but I don't think it was a complete flop. #3 Windows Vista - What a nightmare. I could never figure it out. I temember buying a new laptop at the time Vista came out and requested an older version of Windows on it because I hated Vista.#2 3DTV- Never wanted one and I just spent the money on getting a better tv. To hell with wearing glasses to watch tv. #1. Google glasses to me wasn't a flop. Google has set the standard for the future but this came out to soon. I think they will release these again 10 years from now and will kill the market.

    Laser disc Hollywood movies were cheaper than VHS equivalents in the late 80's/early 90's. VHS tapes we're over inflated prices due to video rental stores in the 80's. Star wars on VHS was over $150 on the 80's

    Ok baby. I think someone needs to explain to you what a "flop" is. Its something that never sells well and does terrible on the market. The wii, apple watch, and (initially) the note 7 all did really well in the market, but succumbed to the inevitability of time and market competition

    Do Mojo actually understand what flopped means? I do not even like the Wii, but you certainly cannot say it flopped. It outsold both MS and Sonys machines at the time and is still something like the 5th best selling console of all time with over 100 million units sold. Yes I agree that a lot of people grew bored with it, but it certainly did not "flop". Now if you had mentioned the follow up, the Wii U, we would be in total agreement as even the follow up to that, the Switch, has sold more units already.
    The other thing that is laughable in the bit about 3D TVs. Yes 3D TV was not the huge success it was hoped, but to say that curved TV's & 4K were part of it's downfall is wrong.
    4K was just a natural progression of picture quality and did not stop them putting 3D in TV's as a TV can house both formats (my new Panasonic 4K does 3D better than my old LG 3D TV for instance). As for curved TV's, that still has not really taken off, and is already starting to look like that may go the way of 3D TVs as well.
