List time: The top 15 tech disappointments of 2007 (or so says PC World)


The year 2007 will soon draw to a close, meaning we’ll be seeing plenty of year-end retrospectives on every Web site in Creation.

I’m sure you’re familiar with all of them, not least of which because we’ve complained about many of them here.
