Vaporware

Wired (I know, I know...I think the people at Wired are the biggest bunch of self-important posers in the world of technology and will continue to do so - but...they do occiasionally have some interesting articles) has come out with it's annual list of vaporware. No surprises on there...not really. I think they give Microsoft too hard a time on IE7 and the new Windows, since those were never supposed to come out in 2005. And just about everybody knows better than to count on a release date from Blizzard. And there are a multitude of conspiracy theories regarding all of Google's beta products.

Still...it's interesting reading. I remember that for a long time, the number one vaporware object was the infamous Daikatana...which (when it came out) was a total disaster. Personally...I was looking forward to "Road to Moscow" for years upon years...even the website for the game says it's coming out in 2000! lol

Ponderous. Wired, "the magazine for IT people", publishes two articles a year worth reading, and said articles are only half right.

I think it's time to send Wired to the magazine farm where it can run and jump and play...

Agreed. I got a free subscription for Wired from Salon awhile back. I think I opened maybe half of the issues...maybe read one or two of the articles. I cancelled it and switched to a free subscription to Rolling Stone. At least that magazine has hot chicks in scanty attire.
