(Newser) – Remember Google Glass? Google would likely rather forget it. The wearable technology tops the worst product flops of all time, according to 24/7 Wall St, which outlines the top 50 (though it doesn't share its methodology in compiling the list). While Google Glass faced privacy concerns and public bans, other products on the list suffered from flaws, overpricing, and bad advertising. The 10 worst product flops:

  1. Google Glass (2013)
  2. Apple's Newton personal digital assistant (1993)
  3. Atari's ET the Extra-Terrestrial video game (1982)
  4. Burger King's Satisfries (2013)
  5. RJ Reynolds' smokeless cigarettes (1988)
  6. Frito-Lay's Cheetos Lip Balm (2005)
  7. Fox's Terra Nova TV show (2011)
  8. Clairol's Touch of Yogurt shampoo (1979)
  9. Coca-Cola's New Coke (1985)
  10. Microsoft's Windows Vista (2007)
