The sorriest tech companies of 2012

No, really, they're sorry! Vendors apologise in 2012 for everything from Apple Maps to Cisco Connect Cloud to outage after outage and breach after breach


2012 was yet another year filled with heartfelt and legally forced apologies from tech vendors, including the biggest names: Apple, Cisco, Microsoft and Google, among others. Company execs apologised in person, via press releases and via social media in an attempt to keep customers from fleeing - or killing them on Twitter and Facebook. But don't worry, everyone will be perfect in 2013.
