    I don't think Zune is some sort of a flop, it's the sale strategy from Microsoft that flops, the strategy was way too conservative, they started selling Zune in very limited number of country, which made it no way to compete with Apple's iPod player, just remember fortune favors the bold.

    Wow, the Sinclair c5 is the worst design and idea ive ever seen. It's like a motorbike side car but without the bike. Lol. No room for trunk or storage even though it's 3 wheeled? A 2 wheel motorbike or even bicycle has more room to carry things on. Also has no roof and seems perfectly designed to catch and store water in the area you're supposed to sit in.. And the best thing, they give you like a hazmat suit that is supposed to protect you from the weather. LOL. imagine the water splashes from other cars or even little jagged rocks flying into you after being flicked up off a semi trailer trucks massive wheels..
    And just WTF is it? A pedal powered tricycle with steering handles next to both sides of your thighs near where your each side pants pockets would be? Lol. Thing looks like a death/injury trap, if anything even grazes you on the road you are basically Instagibbed lol.
    I'd be ashamed to drive this in the road if it's top speed is just 30 km/h~, but even at that speed it would be too dangerous. If going even faster, the risk of death would rise exponentially at such a rate that would make anyone who wants to use this as their daily driver as someone who's utterly insane and/or outright suicidal..

    • eginteractive
      eginteractive 2 days ago +1

      Because the first generation, despite having decent sales, failed to impress reviewers, was extremely slow, and (as usual with Apple products) extremely expensive for what it offered. I have a 2nd generation, and to be honest it goes against everything that Steve Jobs stood for, primarily simplicity. The Apple Watch actually has a pretty steep learning curve compared to their other products.

    The Zune was a real shame because it was way better than the iPod at the time and ultimately just served to give Apple a bunch of ideas to steal.

    i am not sure if an electric car company counts like a tech flop. but i think the flop of "better place" is huge. people bought cars from "better place" had only 99 to 120 miles range,when you need to charge it you have to have your battery swapped in an automated station . and the car cost a fortune to buy.

      It was too late in coming out, however. iPod was already entrenched. And then the iPhone came out a year later and Microsoft didn't even take them seriously. By the time Steve Ballmer took his head out of his ass, it was waaay too late.

    The Zune's failure was a disappointment to me. It sounded better than my iPod and I hoped it would spur a focus on audio quality as a selling point for media players. My Archos Jukebox Studio 20 was awesome too, Archos' later products were trash.

    *Apple Watch a dishonorable mention flop?* Only in the imagination of Apple Haters😡 As of the fourth quarter of 2018, Apple sold more smartwatches than any other company, taking a bite⌚️ out of half the the entire smartwatch market in 2018.
    (Fourth Quarter Sales)
    Apple: 9.2 Million Units
    FitBit: 5.5 Million Units
    Samsung: 5.3 Million Units
    Garmin: 3.2 Million Units
    Sales initially may not have been what Apple hoped for, but the apple watch remains the leader in the industry by a wide margin.
