CNN Names Antenna Gate the Biggest Tech Fail of 2010

CNN has named Antenna Gate the biggest tech fail of 2010. Ping also makes the list at number ten.

1. iPhone 4 'Antennagate'
First Apple said the problem didn't exist. Then they said it was a software issue. Then they kind-of admitted it existed and gave away free cases to help. Then, they said it doesn't really exist anymore and stopped giving away the bumpers.

Months later, the problem is all but forgotten and the phones show no sign of dipping in popularity. So "fail," in this case, is a pretty relative term.

10. iTunes Ping
There's a whole social network set up in Apple's iTunes store now. Didn't know that? Well, there you go.

Not all musical artists are on there. And it doesn't integrate with Facebook. (Although Ping and Twitter just linked up). And, a lot of the time, it simply pushes you to buy music. Needless to say, Ping hasn't really caught on.
