Post In memoriam: the beloved products we lost in 2012

Some products burn bright; others fade away.
A.M. Kuchling


Thanks in part to the still-stagnant economy, the last year has seen more than the usual share of companies and products come and go. Some were beloved, some were depended upon, and others were...well, there's a reason they're not around anymore.

Not all companies and product lines are built to last; some are like shooting stars, grabbing our attention by their audacity and burning up quickly in the process. Others suffer deaths by lawsuit, corporate takeover, or simply the shifting whims of their creators. And others (like social coupons, for example)still linger painfully, continuing under their own inertia long after they by all rights should have ceased to exist.

So let us take a moment, then, 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. Othersā?¦again, not so much.
