Add Segway to the List of Companies with Problems ...

Not that Segway hasn't had enough problems since the hugely underwhelming launch of its Human Transporter -- its "electrical scooter for use in human areas."

(It would have been much better for the company to tone down the pre-launch hype frenzy; better to under promise and over deliver than vice versa.)

Word just in that they are recalling all of their products that have been sold so far (24,000 or so) because the device can suddenly change directions for no apparent reason. (Doesn't sound like fun.)

You know, I like the concept (but not necessarily the product design), and maybe it has a place in our future ...

Anybody have any ideas?
