Deprecated: The Ars 2017 tech company Deathwatch

Emotional, Burning, Unlimited Tuned Laboratory

Our short list of “dead companies walking.”

Welcome (almost) to 2017. If you’re reading this, the Seventh Seal has not yet been broken, the cybers have not all fallen over, and you apparently have not been consigned to the kids’ table by a disagreement with relatives about which bowl game to watch. Hooray for minor victories.

That means it’s time for us to look forward to the year ahead and select the companies and technologies least likely to see its end.
