The 50 Worst Gadgets of the Decade

We're almost clear of the aughts. Just one more week, and we get to leave this decade behind for good. But before we do, it's worth taking stock of the absolute worst gadgets these last ten years have given us.

We haven't ranked our picks, but we have put them in a rough chronological order. Think of it as a guided tour through the various circles of gadget hell—and feel free to have a little guilt when you spot the ones you've owned (or still do). Anything we've missed? Share it in the comments. There have been thousands of gadgets released since 2000, and we're sure there are at least fifty more out there that should never have seen the light of day.

Update: OK, now all you gallery haters can view the embedded all in one long skinny post, if you prefer. Here you go. You're welcome.
