Wages of Hype 

This story is old, but it should be noted anyway. The CEO of Segway is leaving -- Segway, the marvel machine that was supposed to change the world. If there is a case study for hype and not true PR, Segway is it. The two-wheel, self-balancing machine is a solution looking for a problem. It is finding a few applications but none of the world-changing uses that were forecast.

Segway deserves the bad press it gets.
