What happens to the wand / scroll if you fail your UMD check? I don't see any mention of it on the SRD. do you actually waste the spell (it fizzles), or do you just waste your turn?

Well, normally nothing. Scrolls can fail, if you fail by 10 or more.

Items that you fail to activate and roll a nat 1 on will lock you out for 24 hours.
