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

*GROAN* You got me David. Here I was happily following a Baker’s Dozen fellow writer with his seemingly interesting information about what Apple could not make more billions on and you slipped this mess in. Funny nonetheless!

I like to mix things up a bit sometimes. Despite how this may have come off though, I really don’t have much opinion in the Windows/Mac debate. 🙂

You know I would like to know what kind of devices Apple passes on due to the maniacal success of the pnes like the iPod, iPhone and iPad. Also, the Apple Legion will buy whatever gets the stamp of approval from the management team.

Actually, I’m pretty sure the U.S. military still uses tin cans connected by pieces of string.
