Signing out of 2009 with CNN’s Top 10 Tech Fails

December 31, 2009

OK, technology sometimes don’t work as expected.  Remember Rick Moranis as Dark Helmet in Spaceballs?  “Out of order? F#%&! Even in the future, nothing works!” I think about that line a lot — as we constantly stumble over our own future.

My favorite failure this year wound up on CNN’s list.  T-Mobile lost most of the data of a good chunk of its Sidekick users.  And that wasn’t the first time.  Some 17 million German customers lost all their personal data in 2006.   Anyway, lesson not learned.  All the techies I know … a lot, had virtually the same reaction as me:  Redundant Backup.  Duh!

So have a happy New Year’s Eve.  Worry about the new year tomorrow.

Here’s the CNN article: #%@#! The top 10 tech ‘fails’ of 2009 – CNN.com.
