Some devices, now dusting in the dustbin of history, once worked perfectly, but they were replaced by more modern counterparts. We still recall many of them with warmth. But there were others – those that should not have existed in principle, but they were either tried to create or created and now they are clogging the gadget market. 1. Nexus QNexus Q had to proudly show off in the living rooms, transmitting TVs from Google Play and YouTube to TVs. But despite the loud promises of Google, the project died before it was even born. The $ 299 gadget was of little interest to the general public. 2. Microsoft ZuneMicrosoft Zune is a miserable attempt from Microsoft in 2006 to snatch a piece of the market from Apple and iPod. Zune was criticized for the poor sound and inconvenient for the purchase of music \Bill Gates said that Zune is “a dream that will lead us into the future”, but due to poor sales, the project was closed in 2011. 3. DigiScents iSmellDigiScents iSmell is one of those ideas that would be better to stay in science fiction. Announced in 2001, iSmell contained 128 fragrances, certain mixtures of which were supposed to give a smell to any website on the Internet. Although this opened up interesting possibilities, some portals are still not intended to smell. The project did not go beyond the prototype. 4. Phones from GarminIn 2008, Garmin, a well-known manufacturer of GPS devices, decided to break into the smartphone market. In 2009, Garmin in collaboration with Asus launched its G60. But the iPhone and other powerful modern smartphones with GPS navigation trampled the G60 soft-boiled. After all, it was a good navigator on a bad phone. 5. Twitter Peek Even now that the number of Twitter users has reached nearly 500 million, a Twitter-only phone seems like a dumb idea. But in 2009, someone decided that $ 200 for such a device is the price that is needed. You can still buy it on Amazon, but who did it give up to? 6. Netbooks Netbooks appeared in 2007 and immediately gained popularity for their low price and compactness. But in 2009, they began to die a painful death – mainly due to their skinny relatives – tablets. 7. The CPPCC have lived a surprisingly long life. The first models were too big, clumsy, came with an unnecessary stylus and they could not even be called. At the moment, PDAs are almost entirely replaced by smartphones.
