23 Images Depicting Software Mistakes That Really Missed The Mark

Not everyone is cut out to navigate the world of software. For some, trying to build your own computer might as well be on the same level of trying to build your own spaceship. Especially in this day and age, technology continues to evolve at a blistering pace. You just never know what’s coming around the corner next. These software fails are in a realm of their own in terms of completely missing the mark.
