CNET's Tech Turkeys of 2013

What better appetizer for your Thanksgiving feast than a healthy serving of this year's blunders and embarrassments in technology?

Ah, 2013. The year Microsoft continued to be, well, Microsoft, everyone tried to get their mobile on, and Samsung tried to show the world that it's going to be king of wearable tech.

Yup, there were gaffes. There always are. We also saw the launch product for a now-failing platform (and failing company), and the company that wanted to the entire planet to phone Home . And who can forget our nation's Capitol: A stream of leaks that showed the world that, yes, Uncle Sam is watching every click you make , not to mention those of foreign dignitaries. And what about that health care Web site ?

So, without further ado, here are CNET's Tech Turkeys of 2013: a memorable list of gaffes and flops. And enjoy your food.
