I haven't yet found a good use for those stickers. I was considering sticking them on my Windows PC just because... :D

Know what you mean...

I wasn't too fussed with those little bits of twisted wire that went around the power-leads in the newly-opened box of my G4.

They weren't much good for anything after that.

Apple's hockey puck mouse. Required constant cleaning. Made loud clicks. Squeaky after about 3 months of use. Impossible to keep straight. Scared just to think about it.

Excellent point.

Had forgotten about those until recently, when I was asked to help fix a friend's G3 iMac. It also had a rubber ball in it... :eek:

Bit weird how that one actually got produced... nobody liked it – couldn't they see that? Or maybe it was one of Steve's things and nobody wanted to say 'Umm... Boss, that's a really crap idea...'

I put one on the cubicles of 2 of our IT guys. :D

Idiots couldn't believe how fast I got our test eMac (testing our web sites, decided to have it moved to my office so I canuse Pages for some quick and pretty PDFs) up on the network and attached to a network printer. One of them said it's a good thing we don't have a lot of those of I'd be out of a job.

The Apple stickers are the only thing that are making my car look classy.

By the way, the wors Apple product for me would be this WHITE wireless keyboard. It get so dirty that look like from the post war.

The reason for the round mouse was for one purpose only to set it apart from the rest and acquire attention to a company and its products heading downwards to add someone DIFFERENT to the future outlook of both the product and company.


It had no other reason, it was a marketing ploy. :)

I have yet to find a reason even a bad one for that matter to use the Apple stickers.

You do not see me putting VW or BMW stickers on my computer, then why would I put a Apple stickers on my car. :confused: :)

Back in college I was so tempeted to put a VW sticker on my Idigo iMac, culd never bring myself to do it. It would have ruined the iMac. However, a VW sticker made its way on to my word processor (I used that beast for a year and a half before I switched, even though I had a working PC. I hated that PC). Never had a use for the Apple stickers though.

Wasn't the PB 5300 pretty bad? I never had one, but I have not heard good things.

Steve would have you fired on the spot. Or shot. Or laser beams would be shot from his eyes and fried you. :rolleyes:

I guess I own every bad product Apple makes. I've got one of the G3 iBooks with a logic board that has been replaced three times now. As far as the stickers go, one came off at the carwash a few weeks ago and my last one is on there now. When it falls off, guess it's time for a new computer...

How about thrown in a tank with piranhas and sharks with freaken laser beams mounted on they head. ;) :)

Apple needs to move its torture methods to the 21 century. ;) :)

For me at least. I went through 3 ipods in 8 monthes due to hardware related issues (not accidental). Thats just me though, I Have friends who have them and they are still on there first.


I guess I just have bad luck.

Worst product ever i would have to say is the iBook series with the defective logic boards. Those things are pieces of low quality crap.
I still have mine :( trying to get rid of it ...

I second the vote for the line of 800mhz G3 iBooks
