Not Survived: Failed Technologies of the Decade
Hmm, what about those modular laptop graphic cards? I think they were called MXM or something like that. I haven't seen it grow at all.
And it's too bad PhysX is all locked up in green . . . *sigh*
Oh and also, I have those ViewSonic CRT pictured in the last page and I would say, it's the best CRT I've bought, and I will still use it for many years to come!
The Shuttle XPC systems were very popular earlier in the decade but their biggest problem now is that they didn't adjust their prices when everyone else went lower. They were still charging well over $400 for the basic XPC case and motherboard combo. Small size is not a luxury. NewEgg barely carries any Shuttle XPC stock at this point.
The PDA wasn't a failure of the decade. It was extensively used in the early part of the decade and the beginning of the smart phone technology used everywhere today. I'm at least glad that they are all but phased out as I hated all the different sync agent installs I had to do.
I don't agree with BTX being a failure. Sure, it was created simply because P4 architecture was scalding hot but there are many currently available OEM PCs (Dell, HP, etc) that use the design in it's desktops today.
so they can skimp on using a proper case with proper cooling
Those companies hardly use BTX, they just use proprietary things they can afford...
