Blame in-flight WiFi! SkyMall LLC, the airplane catalog company best known for a staggeringly long list of bizarre products that cost way too much, officially filed for bankruptcy today.

According to Bloomberg, the catalog was suspended immediately as execs seek out a buyer to lift the company out of its financial plunder. It seems that with more and more customers tuning in to their seat-back entertainment system or cruising the Internet on flights nowadays, that ol' failsafe SkyMall simply fell to the wayside. And, it probably has a little something to do with the fact that it sold products that most humans will never actually use.

Even so, it's a bit sad to see the magazine go. Flipping through its pages always provided endless laughs on long flights, and we really have been meaning to buy that globe-turned-bar thing. We'll keep our hopes up that the company is able to bounce back in some capacity, but until that happens we'll be mourning over these 10 completely ridiculous products.
