Eight Technology Letdowns

1. Virtual Reality

26 years (!) after the movie “Brainstorm” piqued our curiosity, most people don’t get any more “virtual” than Second Life or the latest episode of “Survivor.”

Technology is subject to grandiose expectations, and often it fails to live up to the hype. We’ve made huge gains in information management, communications, and getting sports scores on our mobile devices, but the promises unmet leave us wanting more.
