On balance, says Wired News,  the tech world’s triumphs far outweighed its failures in 2005. But Wired’s editors felt compelled to chime in with a top-10 list about the year’s nastiest moments in technology.

Among the shamed are Tivo for its newly-deployed Macrovision self-destruct mechanism which was intended for use on premium content only but had been accidentally triggered by noisy cable TV lines for a handful of customers. PayPal for delaying the transfer of $25,000 to Katrina aid, and, dare we forget, Sony’s Rootkit problem.
