Top ten failed technology trends for 2005

Posted on Saturday, December 31 2005 @ 21:31:10 CET by

Here's a look at the top ten failed tech trends for the past year, the article kicks off with the BTX form factor:
BTX seemed like a logical solution to the dilemma of ever-increasing heat inside modern high performance PCs. BTX ("balanced technology extended") is to re-lay out motherboard components and re-architect internal airflow to maximize cooling while minimizing noise. But you need a BTX chassis and BTX-compliant cooling solution, which consists of a heat sink and cooling fan. The cooler we tested in late 2004 weighed 2.75 pounds (or 1.25 kilograms) and was massive.
Other failed tech trends are: HD video on the PC, HD digital audio, Windows XP 64-bit, HD optical drives, copy protection for music CDs, iPod competitors, the digital home, Google's Gmail and dual graphics cards. Read on over at ExtremeTech.
