The Year in Review; 2006 Top Ten Lists

It’s almost 2007, and who doesn’t like looking back at the previous year by perusing the various Top Ten lists? Here are some of my favorites…

From Wired.com we have the 9th annual presentation of the Wired News Vaporware Awards, their ode to the year’s top technology products promised, hyped and scheduled, but not delivered. Click: Vaporware ’06: Return of the King

From consumeraffairs.com, the Top 10 Scams of 2006 From the article: “Scammers scored at will, generating instant cash using lottery and fake check scams. They capitalized on news events and pop culture to catch consumers off guard, and enlisted all kinds of emerging technology to perfect identity theft.”

American Council on Science and Health serves up; The Top Ten Unfounded Health Scares of 2006 where they say, “Unfortunately, old scares seem neither to die nor to fade away—some of these that garnered media attention in 2006 are replays of earlier scares, sometimes with a new twist.”

From foreignpolicy.com we find “The Top Ten Stories You Missed in 2006“. You saw the stories that dominated the headlines in 2006: the war in Iraq, North Korea’s nuclear tests, and the U.S. midterm elections. But what about the news that remained under the radar?

  1. Good info! I especially liked the Top 10 Scams and Top 10 missed stories lists. The sad thing is scams are expected to get worse in 2007 and will involve instant messaging, online communities (like MySpace) and cell phones!!
