Last week, an email was leaked to the public that included some rejected ideas for new Apple projects. Here are a few of them:
iRate: an app that lets users search rates for everything from insurance to plane tickets, all in one easy place.
Reason for rejection: severe customer dissatisfaction.
iScream: A glasses/earbud combination that turns daily life into a horror movie, complete with lighting and soundtrack.
Reason for rejection: test users still won’t go down into their basements.
iHop: an exercise regime app that centers around hopping through daily activities in order to burn more calories.
Reason for rejection: users always end up making pancakes.
iAye: a device for the military that turns recruits into trained killers in record time.
Reason for rejection: the military runs strictly on Windows.
iLand: a device that cuts users off from the world, keeping them isolated from meaningful relationships and distracts them with mind-numbing substitutes.
Reason for rejection: made redundant by most existing technology.
iCon: a $2000 device made of molded plastic and aluminum that sits on your shelf and plugs into a 110V connection
Reason for rejection: no perceivable purpose
