Submission + - The worst Apple products of all time (pcauthority.com.au)

An anonymous reader writes: While Apple is frequently referred to as a leader in consumer electronic product design, the history of the company is filled with examples of poor design and questionable product strategies. This list of Apple's worst ever products includes some interesting trivia, including Apple's overpriced eWorld Internet service, their painfully bad attempt at a "value" computer (the Performa), the much-loathed "hockey puck" mouse, and the Apple Pippin gaming platform. The article also includes the infamous Apple III, which overheated so badly that it prompted one of the strangest repair techniques ever: "Users were advised to pick the computer up a few inches off the ground and then drop it, hopefully jostling the chips back into position."
