2016 was full of surprises from the Apple as well as the ‘others’ bandwagon.
The Macbook Pro bombed hard and the Note 7 was literally a bomb. We saw a lot of popular apps get the plug pulled on and a lot of social media trends with weird reasoning.
Here is a quick look at what all died in the world of technology in 2016.
1. Headphone Jack
The new iPhone doesn’t have it, so that means it will be extinct from all other phones within the next couple of years.
2. Galaxy Note7
Touted to be the most promising phone of 2016, the Galaxy Note7 got caught in a massive scandal of its own.
One of the most popular short video streaming apps, from Twitter, saw an abrupt end when the social media company decided to shut it down for good.
4. Google Nexus
Yes, the Pixel is still alive but Google decided to get rid of the Nexus branding – most probably because they wanted to shed the image of a geek phone.
5. GoPro’s drone
The GoPro Karma Drone got recalled in what was a mess up of epic proportions for the action cam manufacturer.
One of the first players in the smartwatch segment, Pebble was bought over in whole by Fitbit, this year, and completely dissolved as an independent watch maker.
