CableCARD. The technology that would allow any manufacturer to make a product that would interface with satellite and cableTV programming, including pay per view and digital channels. It was a brilliant idea, perfect in its implications and freeing up of market forces to produce excellent set-top boxes and solutions for consumers. Except that, like the Tiger Woods Center for Marriage Enrichment, it failed miserably.
