Hey now! The technology didn't fail, they had some kind of manufacturing defect which ate a disk which in turn made the drive destroy every disk you put in afterwards. But the technology was sound. Just wanted to make that distinction. 

Something similar happened to the Jazz disks too, but they were solid disks. The drives started destroying disks. That was pretty much the end of them. <sigh> sad days.
