Obsolete version of previously useful appliance, perhaps because it was replaced by a new model or just became irrelevant over time. Starts off being very popular, but pretty quickly becomes an embarrassment, is pushed into a corner or the back of a closet and never mentioned again. Tends to start whining uncontrollably regardless of which button you press.
Yeah son, that was called a Soda Stream/Stylophone/walkman, obviously these days it's just a moone.
