Let's take a look back at the year that was 2013: Apple released the iPhone 5S and 5C, Google dropped the Moto X, Samsung released the Galaxy Gear, and both Sony and Microsoft released new game consoles.

The things that will have to live out Christmas hiding in shame, with fingers crossed on New Year's Eve hoping that 2014 will be better? Yes, that's right: what about the things that FAILED? That's what we've gathered in this end-of-the-year edition of The Biggest Gadget Flops of 2013. From the bad, the terrible, to worst of it.
