Over the past dozen columns of Grousings, I've occasionally, sometimes vehemently, nominated various bits of gadgetry to an ad hoc deathwatch list. In particular I singled out Polaroid photos, home photo printers; disposable batteries; and Sprint's WiMAX venture Xohm (maybe even Sprint itself, if they aren't careful). Some of those predictions are necessarily more long-term than others, and some probably wishful thinking. But I think the deathwatch is a worthwhile pursuit if only because it's fun to be able to say "I told you so!" some day—or to tell others to eat crow (as all Apple fans are now doing after a decade of defending their passion). So this week I'd like to flesh out the list with a few moribund contenders, and then welcome your input for other nominees in the comments section.
