In 2011, the tech world saw the release of game-changing gadgets including the iPhone 4s, Kindle Fire and iPad 2. But along with the good (and, yes, sometimes, the bad) came the bizarre.

Lady Gaga and fellow celebrity Kanye West invested $7.5 million in Turntable.fm – a website that allows you to experience and discover music online with your friends. Users can rate music with their friends by clicking either the “Awesome” or “Lame” button, or become a DJ by spinning tunes with other DJs on the site.
