Worst Named Gadgets
Fremont: “What’s in a name?” Shakespeare once said. Though the name of a product is not a great deal, some companies have gone a step ahead and kept weird names for their products. Here are few of the worst named gadgets.
In order to cash in on the growing fame of social networking sites and to bring together music lovers from across the globe, Apple launched the Ping a cross-breed between iTunes and social networking, but Apple’s Ping caused confusion with “to ping” on Facebook. Though during the time of its launch Ping was supposed to be integrated to Facebook, it never happened, and Ping had a very short lifespan. Ping was criticized for not having major artists onboard, the lack of the basic social media activities like posting status updates, and urging the users to buy music. The site was under scrutiny within a day of its launch as fake accounts were created, which flooded it with spam. Also, the short-lived Ping was available in 23 countries, where iTunes Store was accessible, making the other countries out of its reach.
