101 Dumbest Moments in Business

Posted on October 3, 2007

Business 2.0, a publication of CNN has a list of the 101 Dumbest Moments in Business which detail the year's biggest boors, buffoons, and blunderers.

A few of my favorites:

#14 - Vonage

This is a painful one considering they lost a patent lawsuit to Sprint this week which is going to cost them somewhere in the ballpark of $70 million. 

#61 - Microsoft Employees Prefer Google

An independent study indicates that every 2 out of 3 Microsoft employees actually use Google instead of MSN or Live Search when searching the Internet.

#101 - Hasbro Pussycat Dolls Release

To compete with Bratz dolls, Hasbro decides that only the only answer to a doll that could complete are replicas of the music group, Pussycat Dolls.  Parent complaints; Hasbro thinks twice on the idea.

You can find the full list here.
