2001 Vaporware Awards

from the it's-about-time dept

Ah, the yearly tradition from Wired News: the Vaporware Awards for the products most expected, but which never arrived (nor might they ever arrive). Lots of video games on the list (Duke Nukem Forever, Warcraft III, Team Fortress II). Others were just overhyped products that never had much of a chance (Indrema, iSmell). I think putting artificial intelligence and 3G networks on the list is a little silly since I don’t think anyone actually expected such things to be “done” this year. Most of the hype about both were looking to the future about what they’ll eventually be able to do (though, both may prove to be complete failures in the future).
