Below are the top 10 biggest tech failures of the last decade according to Time.

I can understand most of these at first glance. Some simply failed to launch. Others failed to understand a shifting market.

I really liked Gateway about 15 years ago. I liked their desktop computers. What happened to them?

Gateway’s failure has been blamed on several things, primarily its reluctance to enter the laptop business. Its share of the desktop business was strong through the early part of the decade, but it did not shift to portable computers as fast as its major competitors did.

Here is the top 10 list:

Microsoft Vista
Gateway
HD DVD
Vonage
YouTube
Sirius XM
Microsoft Zune
Palm
Iridium
Segway
