Ha, that's funny, Cabe. Usually it was the kids that wanted the Atari. I guess justice was served when you kids took it over!

I remember my parents buying 'themselves' the Atari 2600 for the holidays one year, suffice it to say, we children hijacked it within a matter of hours and never gave it back.

Thanks, Jim. It's on the list. The dotcoms suggestion is a good one but I think there would be too many to name! I am highlighting Webvan and Internet grocery delivery in general, as it didn't really take off the way it was supposed to.

That's a good one, Nancy! I wouldn't have thought of it, but it's definitely one for the list.

The Dot-Coms.  (hundreds - maybe thousands-? – I wonder if you can research that)  The one that sticks hard in my mind was Pets.Com, who I remember had a Sock Puppet as their mascot, paid $2M for a Super-Bowl  ad in 2000, and went bankrupt later that year.  All hype, no content.  They were the poster-child for the dot-com bubble bursting.

Sony Betamax.  Intentionally incompatible to VHS format, creating a competing market that the market wouldn't accept.

While New Coke (Yecchhhh!) was my first thought, Elizabeth - the Mizar Flying Car comes to mind.

Nancy Golden, now I am working on a list of inventions that didn't quite live up to their hype (think Segway scooter, Microsoft Zune etc.). Can you or any other of my clever readers suggest ones for the list?
