In memoriam: the beloved products we lost in 2012

Ars Technica:

Let us take a moment to remember a few of the companies, brands, and products that went to the great electronic recycling center in the sky in 2012. Some you may still have traces of in your sock drawer; others may be slowly decaying in a stack somewhere in your IT department. Some of them will be sorely missed by their loyal customers. Others…again, not so much.

I don’t know if I would describe many of these as “beloved” – after all, if they were, they might still be around. But I am saddened by the demise of Buckyballs. I even ordered a set but sadly it was never completed before the company shut down.
