    YouTube is a failure? ... and Palm OS is one of the best operating systems I've ever used.

    Time magazine is a failure.

    3G network, IMO I think the 3G is out date when it is born.
    3G is designed to meet the requirements of data transit, not voice or VOIP .
    The 4G/5G will soon determinal the 3G .

    The world could definitely be a better place without Vista, or at least the early versions of it.

    Latest Microsoft products deserve to be in this list, however, I can't understand, why you've added YouTube and Palm ? :confused:

    Youtube is a failure mainly on Revenue front. Cost required to run Youtube.com is mush higher than revenue generated by it. According to Credit Suisse estimate, In 2009 Youtube.com will generate around $200 M from home page ads and in-videos overlays, but the cost Google have to pay for bandwidth, content licensing, ad-revenue shares, hardware storage, sales and marketing and other expenses of Youtube will be around $711 M.

    So a total loss of about $470 million for 2009 :eek:


    Miserable Failure :D :D :D
