I spend a large chunk of my life looking for new consumer technologies. I’m not proud that I do this, but I can’t help myself. The deeper I delve into a project, the more I want to know about the technologies available that can help me out. And yet, I rant and rave about people who use technology for technology’s sake – with no other motive than they just want to have the latest gadget. (Yes, I understand the hypocrisy of that.)

With that little duality going on inside my head, I read with great interest a funny piece over at CNET.com about the 10 technologies that have come and gone that people wish were still around. It’s cute (at times a little too cute), but interesting because I found myself, momentarily, recalling the days when I first came across some of these (the Concord doesn’t fall into that category).
