The Apple hockey puck shaped mouse shipped with iMacs in 1998. It was hard to hold, uncomfortable, and cheap feeling. It was a terrible mouse. The guys at cNet UK think it was SO terrible that it’s one of the worst tech products ever invented.
I tend to agree that it was an absolutely horrible mouse. One silver lining, though. As is often the case with Apple products, even when they get something wrong – they get something right. The hockey puck mouse was the very first mouse to ever use USB as the standard for connectivity.
The rest of the list is interesting as well…I don’t recognize most of the products listed, but there is one that I am familiar with. It’s name? Windows Vista.
