Submission + - The Top 10 Embarrassing tech Flops of 2012 (latimes.com) 1

SternisheFan writes: Salvador Rodriguez and Deborah Netburn of The Los Angeles Times have a rundown of the top 10 tech gaffes of 2012. From their article:

As 2012 comes to a close we take a look back at the biggest "oops" moments of the last year. Whether it was an advertising misstep (Facebook's "Chair" commercial), or a product released before it was ready (Apple Maps), or just an idea that was ill-received (homeless men as Wi-Fi hotspots), we tried to compose a list of the times when the major players lost control of the narrative.

It's also a reminder that everyone makes mistakes--even exacting tech companies.
