Top 10 Apple’s Worst Failures
3. Apple USB Mouse
Commonly nicknamed “Hockey Puck”, the Apple USB Mouse was released with the 1998 iMac G3 and all successive Macs desktop for the next couple of years. Despite its cutesiness, the Hockey Puck had an awkward round shape, which makes it difficult to maneuver. The push button was frustratingly evasive, even after Apple released marginally improved design with a small indentation. The short cord could barely reach the USB port of most Apple’s desktops and it seemed to have a left-hand bias.
