Microsoft Kinect


Microsoft tried to really force its motion sensing input device down our throats in 2010 with the Kinect, and the introduction of the Xbox 360 in 2010 -- but it died quickly in the gaming realm. The first-generation Kinect for Xbox 360 was meant to be the future, but it quickly died in the years post-launch. It might have crossed the lines to Windows and the Xbox One, but it didn't help.

I still remember coming home with the original Apple iPad, which was the first real tablet and it changed everything. The original iPad was a game changer, and really started the tablet movement. After the introduction of the first-gen iPhone back in 2007, this was another stroke of genius from the now late Steve Jobs.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 400 Series (Fermi)

The Best Tech of the Decade 57 |

Man oh man was Fermi a mess -- it was super-hot, and the GeForce GTX 480 was panned because of it. NVIDIA went from Fermi through to Turing without really making a mess of things like this, with AMD only equaling this with Vega in 2017. Still, the GeForce GTX 400 series was popular with the GTX 460 being a great card at the time (remember the MSI HAWK series?!).
