If you had to name the worst product flops ever, what would they be? Would they be beauty products? Maybe something for the home, your car, your person? There have been many products out in the market, but not all of them were successful. Check out the 25 worst products flops you might remember. Have you ever seen these late-night infomercials and thought to yourself “who would buy that?”. Well, you’re not the only one. Companies and inventors have come up with some bizarre products that for whatever reason consumers didn’t quite appreciate. And it’s not just in infomercials, major companies like soft drink and fast food companies have come up with products that may sound good on paper, but in practice tanked miserably. Check out the worst product flops ever (and our photo credits and sources) and let us know in the comments below if you would buy these products: http://list25.com/25-worst-product-flops-you-might-remember/ SUBSCRIBE - http://bit.ly/2uwq6BJ Follow us on: List25 Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/list25 List25 Instagram: https://instagram.com/list25/ List25 Twitter - https://twitter.com/list25 List25 Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/list25/ See more lists on our website: http://list25.com Have you heard of Orbitz soda?

+Ray Chang just a heads up and i am not hating... i could also be wrong... it may not be such a good idea to have a device uses radio signals directly on skin with blood running underneath. It's bad enough we keep cell phones in our pocket inches away from our reproductive organs. Some women keep their phones in their bras rt next 2 their hearts. Wait till 5g and the new wifi comes out fully... the freq destroys h2o and o2 molecules. We r made of water and we inhale o2. Plz excuse any spelling or grammar errors. I loved my watch also till someone told me this and when i looked into it 4 myself i was shocked then looking into 5g and the new wifi i was horrified.

The demise of the Sony Betamax tape format was more complicated. Sony developed what became the VHS format later, but wanted to - and did do better, the Beta being smaller and having better quality image and tape handling. It was essentially s scaled down version of their professional Beta which was still used by news organisations for, I think, up to ten years after Betamax disappeared. JVC bought the early Sony developed patents, improved the VHS and then took advantage of what seemed to be Sony's snobbish attitude about its own superiority (and they usually were better quality products). JVC decided to license its VHS technology to other manufacturers, which increased competition in the VHS market which drove down prices of VHS decks and tapes. Meanwhile Sony refused to allow anyone else to make Beta so while they got 100% of the Beta market, consumers who were paying over 1000.00 (Cnd) for a home recording deck, bled off to the cheaper and "good enough" image produced by VHS. Eventually Sony got wise , licensing (I think it was two or three) other competitors but it was too late by then. As an aside, I had a Betamax deck that lasted 12 years. The first few were of nearly daily use. A friend's lasted 14 years! I also remember a conversation with my in-laws who asked my advice on which format to go with. "You can't go wrong with Sony", I replied. They never asked my advice again.

I remember the Arch Deluxe, especially the negative ads that were supposed to be cutesy. It’s okay to joke slyly about your product, but if you continually mock it and say it’s lousy, eventually the public will assume you’re right and it is. It’s a case of talking the customers out of wanting the product.

I still use the amazon fire phone. I like it, but I am also a micro-user who pays per minute. I spend about $3 on service a month.. sooo.... great for me. It's a cheap smartphone through ebay and I am already heavily invested in the amazon eco-system, but not so great for 'normal' people who like googleplay. Amazon really did kill it themselves by locking to at&t and also by not allowing the google play store in hopes of driving traffic to their amazonapps store. Huge mistake. But it still works for me!

E.T. was the worst video game in video game history. The Atari 2600 was awesome. E.T. just plain sucked. The company sent all the product to a landfill and hid it.

I owned the Atari 800XL, Atari 130, and the Atari Mega 4 computers. They outperformed the Apple/Mac line of computers as well as all the other personal computers at the time. I wrote my Master's thesis on it. As a teacher, I use them to create test generators, write homework, labs, and other teaching materials. In addition, I used Atari computers to calculate grades, as well as analyze and evaluate lab data. I did this by using Atari's word processor, spreadsheet and database programs or by writing computer code to create programs(aka apps) to this work. Unfortunately, the public thought they were strictly for games. Due to superior graphics and sound compared to other personal computer systems, Atari had some of the best games for computers if you exclude E.T. and a few other games poorly storied games.

I played with the Virtual Boy on several occasions at Toys 'R' Us. The former failed because it provided an extreme underwhelming experience, and the latter failed because greedy capitalists needed to suck up dry the small pensions of the company's frontline employees.

Also, with Nook apps, I can read my books on my phone, computer, and chromebook. I originally because I coulld not afford the Kindle, and have be using one ever since.

Americans love to point out Betamax as a flop but it only flopped in the US. It was quite successful in Japan and other parts of Asia and the world, where it was preferred over VHS tapes due to size considerations and video output quality. I would think Laser Disc would have been a more worthy inclusion here. An even bigger flop would be the entire 3D industry. When will they ever learn?

I had "ET: T. E. T." Atari 2600 game (for the Atari2600 Expansion Pack that plugged into the front of my Colecovision system when I was a little boy. I still have that system and lots of the games for Colecovision and At2600. They still worked as of a few years ago.... Old Tech was way fun in the classic video game era of the 80s. In my opinion, worse than the ET game , which I let a friend borrow back then and forgot to ask for it back) is "Porky's" . Themed after the early 80s film. There is a #PermaGlitch that does not allow completion of a Climbing Scaffolding type screen, the character has to climb it but cant proceed past a certain place.... Arghh. Another rather boring popular game of that era is "Pitfall" Endlessly repetitive looping of a small variation in screen styles as the little safari dude (Pitfall Harry, I think, ...from memory) mindlessly runs and runs thru screen loops ... some have snakes he needs to jump over... the retro graphics are forever seared into my memory. I Loved "LadyBug" , "Miner 2049er" , "Venture" , "Dig-Dug" and similar games... before friggen annoying military/fighting games took over the genre.

Keep in mind that I graduated high school and 83 . So I feel I was the first ones really grow up with it and mess with it and watch it Evolve . I believe it was 77 and the Christmas is 77 my grandpa bought us that the Atari 2600 or something like that and it had pong some tank battle some kind of shooting game and I just can't remember remember the tank battle upon mostly . Then a it was set up in the back room with the TV you know put in the back room because it was kind of a big deal to have two TVs in the house at the same time so I want to say I was nine or 10 and my brother was seven and even at that age is always better than me and videogames for whatever reason . And then all the adults took it over and they play with it all day and night I got drunk playing that damn game . Me and my brother Harley played it all until the next day and we were hooked the best I can remember arcade games and stuff I mean I remember the Atari start have centipede in it has been Galaga , then my friend Jimmy got the Coleco vision and I'm saying maybe 19 8079 8081 I'm not quite sure.( I'm not typing this I'm using my voice AutoCorrect and if it comes out wacky I am tired of messing with it so I just can't do it like I do)!!!! They gave us a whole bunch of different types of games games it actually took more Inoh skill we had remember what button did what was it was a lot better I mean you could tell Coleco vision was the shit you know was good . I mean that baseball and soccer I believe there's one of those we can pass the ball around you know where you kick it and then if you held the button your little character would catch it , and you could hold the ball they pass it to another person ball and it was pretty cool. So the way I remember it I don't know if it's true or not that the NINTENDO took it over or maybe already involved with Coleco.. involved with them I don't know but I remember Coleco vision turning straight in that Nintendo and Atari was dying and we @Sega I think Sega turned into Sony I'm not sure PlayStation this is my memory. So then you had your diehard Atari guys then you had which I was a part of the Nintendo Coleco vision champions and then in income Sega I don't know why but I keep thinking it turned into Sony the PlayStation like PlayStation one and once we got the Sony PlayStation I was older man I got hooked on video games for years with that damn consul.. If my memory serves me correct I think maybe Coleco vision was tied to the Commodore 64 maybe because I remember INtelevision but nobody like INtelevision it was all about Coleco vision. So you had the guys that were kinda cool smoking PotPlayer football getting all the chicks . Going off one direction let it let us to PlayStation and then you had all the band fags with the drama dudes and all that you know the questionable type guys they all gravitate toward Nintendo , again it's just my memory and then I didn't play Nintendo for a while and then I I've played at some dudes house and it was good you know donkey Kong I can't remember what donkey Kong that was the one game that donkey Kong man he played all day man we're blessed man we can plaY our arcade game without having to pay quarter. By time I got freshman high school junior sophomore there was a tarry meteors or meteorite or an old meteor Atari game and you had Pac-Man you had centipede you had this some Tron you had Galaga dig dug and then you could play this one game forever and ever spent money on it it was just animated it was like choose which path you're gonna take in those that Disney thing is like really expensiv A dollar to play at the time. You will earn money only rseeg old arcade place man it was cool made friends there play video games competition smoke a joint get Tujagues Eatza Pizza washer and repeat.AHHHHH THE 80s and I'm telling you right here right now I was in this bystander I participated . That's what SoCal was the shit Swiss white boy still ruled that fucking place . Started doing a bunch of blow got into the wall of voodoo and the violet fems . Just to get laid I cut my little rock 'n' roll hair damn I was a hit and it was a blue after that and I don't remember playing very much video games and tell I went in the army and it was all about fucking Sony,,,,,. I kept all my old videogames still have them. I know this is funny is my brother got into DND Dungeons & Dragons and that did it it leaned him over to the Nintendo or if it was Colico vision still in Zelda that must've been the Nintendo . I get out of the army and meet my brother almost got in a fight in the front yard over Mortal Kombat minute hate I had for him when he beat me kill me . So that's what I know about these games anyway take care buddy PS I subscribed

Newton (#20) was not the failure that you describe. It had a slow start, the initial models (multiple ones) were too slow for dong a good job. However, with the Newton 2000 and 2100, the performance was good and the product useful. However, by then it was too late, Apple was in crisis and Newton was still not pulling its weight and was canceled. "The Apple Newton was scapped almost as quickly as it hit the market". This is just plain wrong. It was on the market from 1993 to 1998. Five years! If you want to talk about a failed Apple product, consider Pippin.

I owned the Atari and ET .. but that wasn't the reason for Atari's downfall ... the 2600 was limited in the graphics and storylines of games and with the newer systems coming out, the 2600 became a relic. Yes ET was a bad game, and yes Pac Man on the 2600 was horrific, those weren't the downfalls. In fact Ms. Pac Man was fantastic on the 2600 and helped people forget about pac man.

Newton? Failure yes, but do your research. The handwriting recognition was phenomenally accurate, but the device was to slow and waiting for recognition to happen was painful. It was not pulled as soon as it was released, it survived to the 2000 series which was fast and if you can find and try one, you leave the experience utter bewildered as to why today's phones still can't recognize handwriting so accurately and quickly. Why that tech isn't in the iPhone is a true mystery.

Worst invention for me personally was Diet Coke. Before it came out TaB(which tastes 10 times better than Diet Coke) was the only diet soda then Diet Coke took over market share. Now they only sell TaB in certain parts of the US and now I have to buy it online and pay $20 to $40 for a 12 pack or either drive to Illinois from Indiana to get it.

The one that I thought would be in the list but wasn't is MiniDisc ( calm yourself). No, I'm not criticising it, it was a good product but launched at about the same time when mp3 became available and never had the chance to realise its potential. MiniDisc2 could handle mp3 files, but it was too late. Shame really...
