The industry has seen plenty of cock-ups. Of all the big-time balls-ups who blew it worst?
Who Blew It Biggest?
Nokia will win this but why are they on the list ? They haven’t blown it just yet as they are still (by a healthy margin) the world’s biggest cell phone supplier, albeit by volume.
I voted Xerox, forever to be remembered as a photocopier company, if only..
I also think that Nokia will win, in part, because it’s mistakes are fresher in peoples memories. I voted for Sun who was also once dominant in their field. Another candidate could have been DEC.
I think Nokia will win this, but mostly because its mistakes are recent. I have nominated Alta Vista: They could have been where Google is now, but few people even remember them these days.
