21 Apple Product Flops

Apple-Quicktake-200-digital-camera.jpg

To look at them now, with their flashy launches, devoted fans and piles upon piles of cash, it would be easy to believe that Apple had never made a mistake in their life.

But that would simply not be true. This excellently informative infographic aptly demonstrates that the company made a fair few mistakes on the path to world domination, with some of them so huge that they nearly put them out of business.

7 Day Shop have compiled 21 of Apple's most famous failures in chronological order, giving an overview, suggested reasons for each wrong turn, and the lessons they learned from each one. It makes for quite a rollercoaster ride, albeit one which has ended up with a good 15 years of seriously smooth cruising.

Take a look below and remember: if at first you don't succeed, try and invent the iPod instead.
