In light of yesterday’s post from Dan Licht, we thought it would be fun to take a look at some misfires from ghosts of Apple past.
Newton. Just ahead of it’s time? The Apple Newton had a handwriting recognition system that drove people crazy.
Power Mac G4 Cube. This was such a great looking computer, but it was expensive, lacking in peripherals and the casing cracked annoying the people who had dropped all that dough on it.
FireWire. How many devices do you have that you can’t hook up to anything else now? Not just an Apple mis-step, of course, other companies were just as guilty, but since it was initiated by Apple in the 80s, I’m going to let them take the blame.
iTV (v 2007): The pre-curser to the Apple TV that you now know (and love?), iTV was expensive and buggy.
iMac “puck” Mouse: The one that came with the original iMacs. So cute to look at. So impractical to maneuver.
Now, we know you have something to add to this list! Agree or disagree with the misfires we picked?
