Pippen (Apple, 1996)In the same year that the Nintendo 64 was wowing the pants off gamers, Apple decided the time was ripe to enter the console market. The result was the Pippen; a 'multimedia gaming device' that shared much in common with the earlier 3DO (read our 10 Biggest Tech Flops article to see how that one panned out.)
The Pippen was essentially a stripped down Power Mac, complete with an inbuilt 14.4k modem and CD-ROM. Fewer than 150,000 units were ever manufactured and the division was axed in 1997 by returning Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
