Macintosh Portable, Pippen make PCWorld Worst tech list


PCWorld has compiled a list of the 25 Worst Tech Products of All Time. All the usual players are there; IBM, Microsoft, Real, and Apple. Apple?! Yes, that's right kiddies, Apple wasn't always firing on all cylinders like it is now.

The Macintosh Portable clocks in at number 17, but only because it was 16 pounds, wouldn't run on AC power and cost $6500.  Other than that, it was a great machine. Pictured above is the Apple Pippin, Apple's only attempt to enter to lucrative game console market, which comes in at number 22. It was slow, expensive, and had almost no titles.

Any other Apple products you would add to this list?
