Apple may be one of the largest, most successful companies in the world, however, they’ve had their share of flops when it comes to technology offerings. has created an infographic entitled “Apples Biggest Failures” detailing some of Apple’s lesser known (And less successful) products.

We start our journey with the Apple Lisa. This computer cost $9,995 back in 1983, and would cost $21,000 today. While the product failed to fly off shelves due to price, it flew into a landfill in Utah (Rumoredly) as a tax write-off.

In 1989, the Macintosh Portable came out, and at a whopping 16 lbs, along with the size of a briefcase, users were left less than happy. The PowerBook came out a few years later to replace it.

1993 brought us Macintosh TV-an odd cross-breeding of TV and computer, which sold only 10,000 units.

The Quicktake was another awful Apple product, and in 1994, it failed consumers in image quality and price. In another product off-shoot, the Pippin was introduced just a few years later, which was not only slower than its video game console competitors, but was more expensive, to boot.

The Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh was another product that failed to be competitive with consumers. Its original price tag was $7,499. When units failed to sell, the price dropped to $1,995-consumers still did not buy it.

In 1996, the Puck Mouse was touted as the best mouse ever made, but due to it’s hard to use profile and it’s ergonomically incorrect design, it got scrapped.

Their failures don’t stop there, as in 1996, the iPod Hi-Fi came out. This system was seen as a shelf that made noise-and was quickly overshadowed by better products.

Even since the introduction of the iPhone in 2007, Apple’s stock has had a rough ride on the stock market, and this infographic details just how rocky that road has been.
