The Macalope has seen quite a lot of Apple “flops” in his lifetime however none have been deemed so floptastic because the Apple Watch.

Oh, boy, what a flop. The floppiest flop that ever draped languidly over a wrist. A veritable bunny of a flop.

We should always all know this by now however for the newer college students within the class who may need transferred in from Apple Doom 101, however the purpose the Apple Watch was roundly declared a “flop” was that it didn’t instantly promote in the identical type of numbers the iPhone was promoting in. Because the Macalope famous six years in the past concerning the yard stick pundits use for Apple:

Every thing they promote should “turn out to be a cultural phenomenon” or it’s a “flop.”

Properly, about that…

“Apple Watch Is Now Worn on 100 Million Wrists” (Tip o’ the antlers to @JonyIveParody.)

Is that sufficient of a “cultural phenomenon” for ya or have we moved the objective posts but once more? After all, the 100 million Neil Cybart claims there’s his estimate nevertheless it’s an informed estimate. The true quantity is someplace within the 100 million ballpark.

Let’s name the ballpark Flop Area.

Not every little thing Apple makes is a breakout hit. The Contact Bar had some promise however, in contrast to the Watch, Apple’s failed to enhance it a lot within the 4 years because it launched. The HomePod is okay however not an actual measurable hit. The Apple TV appear to be the drunk uncle of Apple’s product providing, wandering aimlessly via the electronics space of Costco yelling for his spouse. Who is definitely at Goal.
