The 10 biggest tech 'fails' of 2010


We're not sure if this qualifies as a "death grip," but the reception glitch was a "fail" before the iPhone 4's success.

(CNN) -- In 2010, we saw social networking skyrocket in popularity. We embraced a new category of tablet computer. And we rushed to new gaming systems that let us play video games without a controller.

But in the technology world, not all valleys are made of silicon. Whilethe highs were high for the tech winners this year, the low points were equally low.

So here are our top "tech fails" of the year: the missteps, misdeeds and mistakes that remind us that no one -- not even Steve Jobs -- is perfect. What did we miss? Let us know in the comments below.
