I don't know if I'd say it was really quickly discontinued, but surface rt series wasn't entirely bad if all you needed was a really slim reliable device to do web work and microsoft store apps. I definitely don't like rt, but the issue was with the lack of app support, and no so much with the device itself.

I was reselling the flip cameras before it was bought by Cisco, very odd branding by Cisco, a company that specializes in Routers, Switches and IP Telephony.

Good job! You mentioned Win Vista! Yeah, I hated that OS! In fact, when I ordered a custom-built HP laptop I asked the salesperson if I could upgrade to XP, and they said, "You mean downgrade to XP?" and of course I said, "No, I would like to wipe the drive and install XP which is FAR better than Vista. So I want to upgrade to XP." It turned out that HP didn't make drivers for the volume and screen brightness buttons for XP so I couldn't really use the laptop with XP...unless I was okay with the screen brightness being stuck at one level and the other buttons (like: play/pause, FF, RW, etc.) not working either.

I loved Google Wave and I was surprised when they announced that they are shutting it down. The development might stop soon after Wave was released, but it was running for year or even more... It was a software ahead of its time, most people did not know what it is and how they can use it. Now there is Slack and other successful platforms which all came long after Wave. Wave had great options for team work and everything was working perfect, the only problem is that it was live somewhere around 2010 instead 2015...

I would’ve thought the BlackBerry Playbook would’ve been in there, it was so massively hyped as the iPad killer in the lead up to release. At the glitzy announcement event, no-one could even touch one, but then when it was released, it got universally panned, not even having email. I have never heard of it since. It seemed to fall off the face of the earth. But I looked it up on Wikipedia, it’s page hasn’t been updated for several years, but it seems it bumped along for a few years at least, supposedly doing well in their native Canada.

FLIP cameras would have costed Cisco more than its worth anyway, and maybe Cisco knew this, because of the rise of smartphones being more convenient to use

I love Google Wave, I've used it in Beta, I don't know why they have pulled the plug on that one. The 75 days was probably the time from public release to termination. because the beta was open for much longer.

It used to be 18 months at leats between phones. So that meant that you were on a 2 year contract, by then you were trading your shitty, cracked screen, pussy phone for a pretty new tech one.. no more.

I actually liked the Nintendo VirtuaBoy. It was too far ahead of it's time though, and not at all augmented reality or even what we now call virtual reality (no motion or head tracking at all), just line art 3D.

They probably discontinued the flip camera because of getting knowledge about smart phones pretty much being the same thing except better

Hey @MKBHD Could you possibly make another one of these if there are any products that you would likely say are either fastest discontinued tech or tech that left a sour taste ? definitely enjoyed this video via 2018 lol

Oh God, I remember working at an at&t store when the HTC First came out. Had that weird "Facebook Home" launcher. I knew something was up when they had us change the displays to show the new price. Most of the demo models just ended up in a box in the back room.

You should make an updated video if there are enough products out there since this was made to warrant another video!

The flip was never released, so it was never a product, so it was never discontinued, so why did it make this list?

I know this is an old post but the quickest discontinued product that I've encountered, personally, was the LG CT810 Incite with AT&T. That phone was a horrible POS. I remember after a few weeks of having it, AT&T started selling them, outright, for $10.

Old video I know, but I'll throw one little known product into the mix - The Audiovox CDM-9900 flip phone. This is back in 2003-2004 when this top of the line flip phone was released. It had a twin brother than ran on Sprint called the CDM-9950, and the CDM-9900 was the Verizon version. It was hyped as a high end phone for its time (with amazing 320x240 screen! Perhaps around 2.4 inch - total guess). Although phones like that sold for around $299-399 at the time, this was delayed and eventually released for $150 on Verizon sometime in 2004, to which I immediately went out and bought it. Excellent product, but clearly released at a price that was designed to just sell the inventory they had, I guess someone decided to axe it and just get rid of the phones already prepared. It wasn't sold for very long - maybe a couple months. I kept the phone for 4 years which is unheard of these days - best pre-iPhone I've ever used, and only switched because my plan was switched from Verizon to T-mobile. It had a 0.3mp camera that was quite good for its time, and could even shoot up to 15 seconds of video which was amazing back then. Had reception EVERYWHERE even when my friends had none, and just really held up well. I had trouble replacing it with a phone I liked until the iPhone 3G became available unlocked in very late 2008.
