When the late Steve Jobs would call a press conference to announce the latest and greatest innovation from Apple, most of the country would immediately take notice and mark that date on the calendar.
Not everyone, however, has that luxury of all eyes focused and dedicated on a particular piece of technology or gadget. Not everyone has the credibility and clout that Jobs did, but even his brilliance faltered from time to time.
So if Jobs didn't always have success with one of his creations, it's not surprising that other larger scale debuts and piece of technology that promises consumers the world not only didn't deliver but failed to capture any sort of audience or piece of revenue.
In some cases, these products are flat out flops.
What exactly constitutes a flop? Well, a lot of elements come into play when a product can't connect to the right audience. Often times, price precludes the purchase since not everyone has the extra income to dump into a product, even one that promises convenience. In terms of convenience, you also have to look at these gadgets and ultimately determine if they deliver as promised. Most of the time, when a product doesn't do well, it's because the idea may have sounded good on paper but didn't translate in the open market.
