Wired Magazine released their 7th annual Vaporeware Awards 2003.

Duke Nukem Forever from 3DRealms got an life-time achievement award and the number 1 spot also went to a game, Half-life 2 from Valve.
On 8th place is the highly anticipated Fossil Wrist PDA watch. Fossil even took orders for a while, till they decided to postpone the release into 2004. In the meantime Fossil released the MSN Wrist Net Watches. Fossil's low-end brand Abacus also got in the news last week about a technical problem with the Abacus Wrist Net Watch. Apparently Static can zap the Watch. See a forum posting in SpotStop. Fossil is exchanging malfuncting Abacus Watches. Why Fossil launched the Abacus brand is actually not quite clear for me. Fossil is already not a high-end brand in my perception. Why create another brand with lower pricing and simpler design. Anyway I hope the Fossil Wrist PDAs will be on the market soon.
