The technical world is an extremely trusted and interesting one. Everyone is always curious about what new is emerging out of it now. A lot of us believe it so much but we forget it has its own share of failures, too.
Let’s have a look at the most disastrous tech failures that took place in the year 2019.
1. Samsung Galaxy Gold Fiasco
Samsung released a foldable screen cellphone in the market. As soon as it came into the hands of reviewers, the screen broke down. It turned out that the screen had a protective layer of film and was easily peeled off even when it was not anticipated to be removed. It was a very bad beginning of the era of foldable phones.
2. Apple Facetime Issue
Apple introduced this feature in Facetime where someone could hear you even before you picked their Facetime call. It had a huge issue in it which a random teenager discovered.
Yes, Whatsapp faced spyware hack this year. Some hackers were able to get into people’s WhatsApp accounts (Android & iOS). An update came from them that closed the gap of vulnerability.
4. Fake Facebook Portal
Facebook Portal has not been liked much. People have given really bad comments to it but to cover that, facebook employees did everything to show on Amazon that how much the devices are being appreciated.
6. Uber’s Blunder
Uber had a bad year if we talk about stocks. Even bad, Uber’s CEO Dara Khosrowshahi made an unfortunate comment at the time of an interview with Axios on HBO when he said that journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s muder was just a mistake by Saudi Government and as cherry on top, he even compared the incident with Uber’s car crash that eventually was a reason of death of a woman in Arizona in 2018.
7. Ovens of June
June’s over caught fire, out of nowhere, in the middle of night.
So, these were some fails of 2019 in the tech department. Not everything that looks fancy and expensive is awesome!
