Apple is one of the world’s most valuable companies, and rightfully so. Their reputation for leading the way through innovation, top-notch service and quality products has earned them a spot as a premium technology supplier. Furthermore, it’s gained the company a loyal following of users who love Apple so much, they’re willing to pay what some refer to as the “Apple Tax”.
As much as we can’t argue Apple’s success, we also can’t ignore the fact their products are priced significantly higher than many of their competitors in the industry. Why is this the case? Is it simple marketing taking advantage of people’s desire to be cool or are there more justified reasons? Is the current strategy sustainable? For those answers and more, check out this video from CNBC International that explores Apple’s history, its products and its pricing strategy.

Every industry has them — new products that were expected to be the “next big thing” but turned into an epic fail. Sometimes it’s a company trying to diversify their current product (New Coke), other times it’s a company trying to get into an industry where they don’t belong (Did you know Bic tried to make underwear, Harley Davidson tried making perfume and Cheetos took a shot at the lip balm market?), and other times, it’s just another failure of an innovative company who tries everything (Google Glass, Google Plus, etc.).
Among the many product flops of all time, the computer market has not been immune. For proof, just have a look at this video from Top Media. It goes through, what they believe, are the top 10 worst computers ever. You’ll be shocked at the types of technology some companies tried to sell.
