21 Great Technologies That Failed

PC Mag still doesn’t get it.

Imagine including the Tablet PC as one of the 21 Great Technologies That Failed

Tablet PCs (2002)
Rather than typing on a PC, why not write on it as though it were a pad of paper? And have the CPU interpret your chicken scratch, sort your notes, and generally work in a much smarter way? Based on sales, it seems the world still isn’t ready for the Tablet PC. Nevertheless, Gates is convinced you’ll eventually love this system.

I think the failure here, is that PC Mag doesn’t comprehend that having the Tablet PC features mainstreamed into Vista is a great success.
