Without further ado, join me as we take a trip down memory lane.

BIGGEST TECH FAILS OF 2015

7. HELLO GOOGLE, I AM DARK SKINNED NOT A GORILLA.

Earlier this year, Google’s photo app tagged a dark skinned female a Gorilla. The news garnered a lot of attention and Google had to apologize. Even with the apology, it still got this position.

6.  STILL ON GOOGLE’S MATTER

This time around, thanks to another Google invention – Google’s map maker, an anonymous user decided to make an illustration of an Android mascot peeing on an Apple logo. Very funny, but thank God Apple is not the type to respond hastily, it would have been bloody.

Anyway, this makes it into the biggest Tech fails of 2015.

5. THAT MOMENT 109 SENATORS REFUSED TO LEARN FACEBOOK

Nobody wants to go back to School, not even Nigerian senators.

4. SAMSUNG, WHAT WERE THOU THINKING?

For those who criticized Apple, Samsung’s flop of the year might also leave you feeling some typa way. Instead of going all the way like Blackberry did with the Priv, Samsung decided to go half way by making a hideous physical keyboard for the Note 5.

3. WHEN NTEL PROMISED US NOVEMBER, BUT WE ARE STILL WAITING

Let us not forget how NTEL dashed our hopes, Despite promising a grand entry by November, NTEL is still  nowhere to be found, but we are still waiting.

  2.APPLE WHAT DID THOU CREATE?

Who would have thought that the classy Apple can end up creating something that made people cringe in 2015, Apple’s battery case just had to take a special seat in this list

 1. WHEN HOVERBOARD TURNED TO FIREBOARD

It was a thing to swag about,

Till it caught fire on numerous occasions.

The hoverboard had a short tenure which makes it the number 1 biggest tech fail of 2015. When a product is so bad that airlines decided to ban them on flights and even the Almighty Amazon removed them from digital shelves, you should know it deserves the number one spot in this list.
There you have it, biggest tech fails of 2015! Which other Tech fails of 2015 can you remember? If it is well deserving, it can make this list.

  8. KingAbsolute says:

    LMAO, so funny.
    What of those that produced extra battery pack or so?

  9. lordseb says:

    The one about the hoverboards made me laugh my ass out, Ntel fucked up big time and why is it that in that picture of senators there are politicians like Wike, Uche secondus etc who are not senators?

  10. ỌBÁDÁRÀ says:

    … Well, I agreed to this list but:
    Samsung did not f*up, Note series is a traditional line, it has to be full touch screen because of the pen’s full usefulness.
    If Nigerian Senators decided not to take Facebook’s lesson, it should not be in this list because I doubt it very much if you would have developed such story if the same was done by U. S of A Senators.
    Hover boards, they should find a way round that in the next-generation…

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

      Err the fact that they agreed to take it but did not show up for th lesson is a big fail irrespective of the country. Samsung committed a design blunder with that keyboard (P.S I wasn’t referring to Note series, but the Physical keyboard they released in the later part of the year) it could have been finer.

      1. Osakwe tochukwu says:

        That samsung keypad is one of the worst tech accesory ever made…even the apple iphone batterypack is way better than the stupid keypad…makes me wanna puke

  11. Authority says:

    Very funny! Number 5 funny pass and that GIF picture of John Cena is a good demonstration for the post.

  12. Joshua says:

    lol, this is really funny, real big tech fails, never knew hover boards caught fire though

  13. Em Dee says:

    I think my biggest tech fail of d year would be Ntel’s goof. They were such a disappointment. If dey could do this, I doubt their reliability when they finally arrive

  14. Zahag says:

    I don’t even know what to say

  15. NGTECH says:

    Nice, never knew Hoverboard caught fire tho.
